In Loving Memory of Lucilla Carillo

My lovely Lucy, you’re no longer here
He called your name; you left without a fear
Your heart was tired and more so your soul 
God let you rest for soon he’d make you whole

There is sadness deep inside my heart
To know that in our group you’ll have no part
I’ll look for you by name, but I won’t find
That face that was so loving, sweet and kind

I don’t blame God, for He knows what is best
You were His loved one, so he gave you rest
A woman of great faith, you had no doubt
You wrote of Him and all that life's about

I’ll miss your poems, and your friendship, too
One day we’re sure to meet in earth made new

Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. 14 For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. 15 According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 18 Therefore encourage one another with these words.

I Thessalonians 4: 13 - 18

    How can we be nothing if our God loves us with such passion? Death is merely a doorway to eternity. We do not know what is on the other side but we do know Jesus will greet us. I too believe she will be eternal.

    I had no idea! She was a lovely and strong woman. Lucilla had a hard life and clung tightly to her faith. I have no doubt that I will meet her in person one day in paradise. Thank you for writing this dedication for Lucilla.

    Eileen, this is so nice, Lucilla was one of the few would email me and talk to me regularly, We chatted so much I have no idea even how we started, she was such a kind heart, and tonight I am in tears. Even with all her health issues she was always more concerned for others! God bless her!

    This puts special highlights on the many comments she made on many posts here on the Soup. She was more than kind to this old wannabe poet. May we take a while to grieve, then, forever rejoice together in celebration of yet one more victory over death.....RIP sweet angel... the stars are just a little bit brighter tonight..... Love Ya.... Jake

    Lucilla was a woman who had great passion and wisdom in herself and also invested those priceless gifts to the outside world, raising awareness about the vulnerable, the strained, and scared amongst us, elevating our hearts to know greater faith and love. Rest In Peace Lucilla...Eileen, this poetic eulogy shows your finest beauty, that last line, " One day we're sure to meet in earth made new..." beautiful...Justin

    May she rest in peace. Unfortunately I've not come to really her on the Soup yet I have heard her voice on Drake's radio show and found out she was sick. Good and thoughtful poem Eileen

    Eileen. I really appreciate you writing a tribute for that dear sweet woman. I came to know her better this past year when she told me how she did not have long to live, and I just could never believe she would be gone this soon. She was a wonderful lady. Love your sonnet for her. What a dear you are.
