Sitting in your hospital room all in white,
I remember your face for what would be the last time,
the tears fell down your face,
from the passing of your daughter that day.
I remember your tears of not understanding why,
I remember you questioned God after all those times,
when you prayed throughout your life in endless dedication,
to finally on this day have someone taken from you without your permission.
Looking back today I wish I would have fulfilled that promise to you,
to be there every day and read the bible to you through and through,
but, yesterday is bittersweet, only memories remain,
you were my aunt who I knew, but never did, it's just not the same.
You were a person around me my whole life, yet I barely got to know
your smile is all I am left with, your laugh just my stepping stone,
to the person I wish I could be,
someone who loved me endlessly, yet knowing you is now a distant memory.
Your passion for life, the people you helped,
those are just some of the attributes I wish I had myself,
your gray hair that used to hit your tired wrinkled face,
is now resting in the arms of Christ, the best embrace.
