In Her Memory

Starting on page 3 now
Because I can’t find words to rhyme
So many memories floating in and out
Maybe I’ll get it right this time

When I first met you
You were the really nice lady next door
But then you became my second mom
And my movie buddy when it would pour

I remember calling after school
“Sandy, can I come with you”
You saying it wasn’t a problem
Just asking what I wanted to do

You taught me how to cross-stitch
And appreciate a cup of tea
Learn the words to Jimmy Buffet
Be the young woman I’ve grown to be

You were here to see such happy times
Like my first set of lingerie
I remember my face turning so red
And not knowing what to say

I remember the rude lady at Nordstrom’s
That you put in her place
You weren’t afraid to speak your mind
Say anything to someone’s face

Learning all the words to Sawyer Brown
For my first concert at the fair
I didn’t have a cowboy hat
So you gave me yours to wear

I’ll never forget our road trips
Playing the alphabet game on the way
Singing at the top of our lungs
Never running out of things to say

You were outside to see me off to prom
Put on Peter’s boutonniere
You noticed the necklace around my neck
And I believe you started to tear

You’ve give me so much in life
And not just the material things
I believe everyone will agree with me
On the joy of the memory your smile brings

I’ll never forget the times we shared
Or the stuff we used to do
I love you Sandy Johns
And I thank god for knowing you

    A very touching memory. I'm sure this wasn't entirely easy to write, at first. This was an enjoyable piece to read, Kierstin. Nice to meet you! :)
