a year ago
she finally let go
in one moment she drifted away
her strength i admired
her body so tired
from the fight she endured each day
her soul was full
didn't take any bull
took life on life's terms, no matter what
and as her heart looked toward
the rugged point of her sword
she laid it down as her eyes slowly shut
she didn't lose the fight
her goal always in sight
to live, love, laugh and tell her story in song
she won in the end
she was a mom, daughter, sister and friend
and everyone who knew her will carry her memory on
There are times in life when your heart simply connects with another...sometimes it's immediate. You can't explain it. It's not always romantic, sometimes it is...other times it's as if you were somehow separated at birth and just drawn to one another life family.
That was how it was with Jeannie. Everyone who knew her was instantly drawn to her. She was a source of life and everyone wanted to be around her.
Thank you Jeannie for letting your soul shine so brightly in our world.
I miss you still.
