Sweet Dreams, My Diamond In The Rough

Published: June 2008

Sweet dreams, my diamond in the rough...

What can I say about Marlene?
When there's so much to say.
I'll try and keep it short and sweet,
Even though I could go on all day!

My "Mad Mate Mar" I'd call her,
The stories she could tell...
A Nutty Tart with a great big heart..
And a woman of the world!

The life and soul at parties
She'd be the first to break the ice.
Taking off her coat, she'd crack a joke
About her experiences in life!

Untold poems she'd write
About her feelings on life
Most were really funny
While some brought tears to your eyes

Because behind all that bravado,
There's another tale to tell...
She'd never had it easy
And at times her life was hell..

Crying on the inside,
But she didn't let it show
And if you had just met her..
You wouldn't even know!!

And through her darkest days
When it seemed
Her hopes and dreams had gone
She picked herself up and carried on.

And
Somehow she found the strength to survive,
Keeping her sense of humor,
Holding her head high!!!

As one of life's best
I'll remember you, 'Mar ...
and picture you back in the day
hand on hip
Tossing back your hair
And a smile upon your face!!

Sweet dreams, my diamond in the rough
Until we meet again
Memories of you will never fade
With love from
Your Forever Friend. Xx
