~ Farewell Becky ~


Today we said goodbye,
to the beautiful Becky Love,
although it rained heavy,
I felt her shine down from above,

she lived her life,
with presence and grace,
even in recent years,
with the struggles she faced,

she fought so hard,
right until the end,
but it feels so unfair,
that God took my friend,

Becky was so kind,
she touched everyone's hearts,
I wish her peace,
in the new life that she starts,

just because we can't see her,
doesn't mean that she's gone,
it just means there's somewhere,
more special she belongs.

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
