to you

Written by: Elizabeth Bark

your like my second mom...
but for some reason, 
this is really hard 
to write...

this poem is supposed to be 
about you and me
well that could 
turn into a 
a novel...

we have been through so much,
you knew me before
i even knew
myself 
10/14/96

we even we on vacation
me and you, sammie and mom
at myrtle beach
forever ago...

during that week, the best week,
i lost my very best,
furry friend 
purple...

and your little sammie
who's not so little now
really thought 
i still had
her...

a few short years later,
here we are,
im 14,
and scared...

if i were to loose you,
it would be like 
losing my
mom

now, i wouldnt have it as bad, 
as everyone else,
but like i said, 
your like my second mom....

to me and mom...
your more than just a friend..
with all of our hearts 
we love you...

you have a very, very,very
special place in my 
fourteen year old
heart...

i would be a very strong
14 year old
if im not 
crying by now...

this poem got really easy
to write...
really fast...

i dont understand
why that is...
but maybe you do

you have to explain to me 
why that is
when you get out 
of this
place...

when you get out of here,
me and you are gonna 
take a day
just me and you

ill come over really early
and fix you a 
really good breakfest
in bed

then we will take the day
and do whatever you want to do 
still in bed!

then, while your relaxing,
ill go and make me
and you a
reallly healthy
lunch

i will be your servant,
for the whole
live long
day

take your time in 
geting better
trust me
we can
wait...

keep doing what your doing
we will be here when
your 
100%

we really have something 
to be thankful for
this year 
and its you
wanda...

you gave us quite a fright.
we cant imagine life 
without you
darlin'

remember isaiah 40:31,
"but those who trust
in the lord will
renew their 
strength

they will soar on wings like
eagles; they will run
and not grow 
weary;

they will walk and
not faint."

keep your faith Wanda,
were all pulling
for you
sweetheart
