What Was It? - Poem by Theodora (Theo) Onken

You are one of the unknown sisters of halo's
An Earth Angel who walked this Earth for 59 years and some months
Your every step-sheer grace in motion;
Your relish for life -undeniable...
Like the warm breeze caressing my summering shoulders-you come to me-
In a muted blur of gold and blue...
Radiance shining through with the sunshine that is your smile;
Your eyes coming alive-yes, sky blue
Your flaxen gold hair much like summer wheat at fruition;
What was it about you that still resides with me here today?
Was it your gentle spirit of love and forgiveness?
Or your always joy-filled soul?
Or was it all of these plus your unconditional love & enormous heart?
The tears still well up in my green eyes, daily...
Wishing that you could be here with me this day
To share a cup of coffee, a sandwich, and one of your hugs!
Thank you for loving me then and now...!
You will always be the gateway to the smiles, joy, love and laughter
Of my life...
