In Memory Of Aunt Julie


The love you sacrificed
For your mother and me
Will be remembered
For the ages;
And now
You are gone,
We hope you feel
The angels embraces.

I am still covered by the things
You taught me
Even though
The times of my youth
Are fading.

So dance with the saints
Until I see you
At the golden gate,
Just dance.

And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
