Has it been 51 years that she's been gone from my life, taken too soon?
After having given me the blessing of her loving, caring ways, been a boon
To so many others, including me, in spite of the health concerns she had
From youth, in spite of which she had done well in school, not becoming sad
But using her talents to bring joy to those around her, until the day she
Met this bright, brilliant, mechanically-inclined vet, and saw she could be
A dedicated wife and maybe a mother to a child
