I wrote the following for my Aunt
Jean's memorial service that was
held today in Atlanta.
She was a beautiful person.
in the midst of the war to end all wars
a shining soul entered this world
of mountain folk , living quiet and simple
in simplicity the most important things
in life are taught
a childhood not rushed, but tended
as a garden
a garden that will survive.
a great depression,
but it never broke her optimism.
brother can you spare a dime?
sister! what a meal!
her love revealed by
her dance in the kitchen,
breaking bread together
uniting hearts in love.
happy days are not here again, they are
the trick is in the perception
she knew the trick
she had the heart
loved ones across the world
in danger fighting, yet another war,
she remained strong in the
strength of simplicity and love.
keeping on the sunnyside
a countenance so bright
nothing but blue skies do I see
nothing but family
that is ever seeking to shine on us all.
she was a carrier, an agent
always in service to this love
always a shining soul.
we are all rich, so rich
nothing but blue skies
should we see.
