In Memory

We love you Becky. I know poetry has helped you cope with things in the past, so I thought I'd share something I wrote tonight. We love you so much and we're so very sorry. We're all here for you.
Love always, Laura


For Brianne

There is a girl not far from here
Her life a work of art
At times she paints with colors bright
And now and then the dark

A daughter, sister, and a wife
Important as all three
But when I think about her life
It's who she is to me

She is the loyal trusted one
In her I could confide
My second wind, my guiding sun
With her I found my pride

Her voice is now inside me here
And though the room spins round
She tells me not to let my fear
Or sadness take me down

She wants me to keep in my mind
No matter if I cry
There's friendship out there I will find
She just wants me to try

She knows there's no replacement
For the bond she sought to give
We long for her embracement
But she longs for us to live

There is a girl not far from here
Though now we are apart
For my best friend I shed a tear
I hold her in my heart.
