To Aunt Stella
I remember as a little girl seeing you standing
with your arms filled with Birds of Paradise
Your smile as bright as your eyes.
I bubbled with joy…
“Aunt Stella!” burst from my lips as I ran to you
and then I was in your arms smothered in flowers…
all those years ago…
Precious is this memory and other memories too
that I have always held in my heart
and always will.
Time marches on..
and unfortunately distance happens…
but loving never stops.
You are gone now
but no matter what
and no matter what happened
you are still a part of me
and in my loving heart.
God Speed Aunt Stella…
forever dance with Uncle Eddie amongst the stars.
