Dedicated To My Aunt


Published: June 2011

Life is too short.
It's not enough,
but we must understand
that if we live it in love and faith,
a road will be made
for the day we pass away.
We can take it
and wait at the end.
for those who once and always loved me,
I will meet.

Your beautiful eyes,
so big and round,
showed love,
showed laughter,
showed happiness,
showed sadness,
but we will remember you as the happy, beautiful women you were,
the one who once cried for love,
the one who once laughed.
I love you, my dear.
We will miss you,
but please wait.
We will meet once again
in the kingdom of heaven
where no pain we will feel.

My Aunt was 48. She was an amazing woman. Her talents were being an entrepreneur , singing ,and being with her family. She is the 6th child my grandmother had lost to alcohol. She gave up after her children turned their back on her decisions. I live 5 states away and it tears me up. I lost 2 other family members in the same year. I have been dedicated to my work for my immediate family and my younger brother is there witnessing all that without me. I love him and my other family so much. God's will holds me together. I do break but He builds me up. Time heals and knowing all is well in the end eases me. Remember the good in their life not how it ended.

My Aunt Dee passed away almost a year ago. It stills bother me but I try not to let people know. She was my hero. She took care of me and my brother when my dad didn't want to and my mother was in jail. I have had a very interesting life. My Aunt was with my dad's brother until she got on drugs and then split apart and she was living house to house. She had cancer but no one knew until she went to the doctor and she had a week left to live. I thought it was the end.

My aunt Tammy died in 2014. It was very emotional for my family and I didn't really know what to think. I was only 10 but we got through it. I still really miss her and I cry sometimes. For those who are reading this I just want you to know God is with you always and when someone dies just remember they are partying with Jesus in heaven. God bless you.

My Auntie Marybeth died on September 18, 2011. Its been so hard to get over because she was like a second mother to me. She died of ovarian cancer after a 10 year battle. She was the strongest person I've ever met and she never let the cancer ruin the time she had. I will always miss her and this poem really helps put it into perspective. R.I.P. Auntie MB!
