This is my poem for today’s NapoWriMo seeing as there were no prompts on the site earlier.
This morning a friend’s sister’s one year old daughter had a fit, and shortly after being released from hospital, she sadly died of meningitis. This is for the beautiful Fleur, may she rest in peace with the other Angels.
One wonderful year we were blessed with you
But God called and so with the angels you flew
Life had just begun you were learning to walk
Your gurgles had changed you had started to talk
No reason we can think of does justify
Why you were taken so early but this isn’t goodbye
It’s the hardest thing when a loved one departs
But you’ll always be in our thoughts and hearts
We know you’ll be up there sliding on rainbows
Giggling away and wriggling your toes
Dancing, playing, singing a happy song
But here with us is where you truly belong
We know you’re always with us, although we cannot see
You’ll live on in the stars, the wind, and even in the sea
See we’re all made of stardust, that’s what connects us, that much is true
So you’ll always be a part of us, goodnight, sweet dreams, we love you.
