sweet sorrow



she was kind, 
she was lovely,
she was sweet, 
she was so good
to everyone
she did meet.

she was a daughter,
she was a sister,
she was a fighter,
she was a lover,
she was a cousin,
she was a friend, 
and she...
was somebody's mother.

oh—
how I loved her!

her heart and her thoughts 
alive in that secret place
of the Most High.

daughter of a King,
the apple of his eye,
she rests in the
shadow of his wings
safe for all of eternity.

parting...
such sweet sorrow.

goodbye lovely one 
—until we meet
on another morrow.






In loving memory of my cousin
Clella
