Woman Of Spring~ - Poem by Theodora (Theo) Onken

She wears a dress of Springtime blue
Satin ribbons adorn her hair
All dressed up for the dawn-but her days near gone
Lost between regret and despair;
The blue of her eyes are as the sea
The blonde of her hair as the sun
The smile on her face-holds a bounty of grace
Too soon her time 'tis done;
I miss her now as i did back then
She was always more to me that my best friend
A shoulder that i cried upon many a day
Too soon, much too soon, came her end;
The Monster Cancer took her breath away
Leaving behind a husband and three sons
A joy beyond your most vivid imagination
For too soon her days were done;
Remembering her now as if but yesterday
Her laughter that healed all that was wrong
A gift from God-now at rest 'neath the sod
Too soon, much too soon - she was gone;

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Love and sorrow
Feel her presence this day now more than ever
Though she may have passed over...
Part of her spirit is still with us...
Most especially with Jon, one of her sons
and me...
I was truly blessed to have her...


Dedicated to my best friend: Joyce R. Shellabager Storms
A kinder soul you will never find.
Who left this world for an Eternity with God.
She left this Earth too soon.
