Touched By Life

Forgive my not having strength in my heart, to properly introduce you
The process of dying is such a fine art, I never quite know what to do
Despite years of training and time in the field, words will often not form
To help you prepare for what time hasn’t healed, so your family can weather this storm
Foolishly wondering why I can’t believe, that there should be some other way
Carefully planning a way to relieve your pain and stress just for one day
Thank you my sweet friend for your wonderful smile, the day you were leaving for home
Your courage and faith during life’s greatest trial, Inspire the tears in this poem
Knowing your family all of these years, has the very best mother and wife
Supports all your friends and calms all our fears, It’s an honor to be touched by your life
