My Daughter's Gift - Poem by Gail Grierson

One February morning, quite early in the day,
My daughter's time was over;
God had helped her slip away.
There were so many questions,
'We are miserable', we cried.
And yet nothing we could do now,
God's will would not be denied.

A 'tinkerbell' in spirit,
Tracey suffered so much pain;
Her cries were often silent
Very seldom she complained.
Her strength was so amazing,
Kept her mission right on track;
And the 'sunshine' whom she cherished,
'Always had her back'.

Brandon's kindness is amazing,
His strength is plain to see;
He's polite and he is caring,
Few have courage such as he.

So take your rest in Heaven,
And watch us, if you please;
Memories will sustain us -
What was meant to be will be.


Love you,
Mom
