THIS WAS WRITTEN BY MY BROTHER JOHN.
You came into this world with a captivating smile.
Opening your eyes for the first time to a world of wonder,
Being the first of two sisters and brothers to follow.
You set the stage for a home full of joy and laughter .
Do you rember the first picture taken of you?
The times beside the fence admiring your babcia’s garden?
The flowers in spring opened your eyes to a world of wonder,
The beauty of the roses protecting with a thorn to hurt your finger.
Just how large was the ocean you saw,
Running in the tide,waves washing toes as your feet sank in sand.
Can you count all the shells you found that day,
Would there be as many as the grains of sand you touched in life?
Just as you saw the spider build its web near the forest cabin,
You begain to spin your own web in life.
You faced with adversity the challenges of growing up,
Sometimes, the events and years were not kind
For we all at times live in an unkind world.
You made it through the awkward years, deserving of a star.
Through the years people would say, you cared more for others
As you should have cared for yourself.
Strange, the man you chose to share your life with did the same,
A destiny of chance fulfilled from above.
You made a lonely man’s house a home,
As he was your prince. That man in shining armor.
As he treated you then, he treats you now,
Always there, by your side, with never ending love.
Wherever you have gone in life, and until your final day,
You have left behind, a trail of peacock feathers…….
life is too short to be taken seriously all the time,,,, go buy a MR.potato head and have some fun.
