A Fallen Limb
A limb has fallen from the family tree. I keep hearing a voice that says, “Grieve not for me. Remember the best times, laughter, the song. The good life I lived while I was strong. Continue my heritage, I am counting on you. Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through. My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest. Remembering all, how I truly was blessed. Continue traditions, no matter how small. Go on with your life, don’t worry about falls. I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin. Until the day comes that we are together again.”
