Friend Funeral Poem

I wrote this poem for my very special friend MaryAnn who lost her battle with cancer on 4/28/12. She was so full of life and always there to help anyone who was in need. The mornings of our birthdays and holidays would start with a phone call from MaryAnn and Bobby singing us a song - Happy Birthday, We Wish You A Merry Christmas, and even Here Comes Peter Cottontail :) No day will ever be the same without her here -- can't wait to see her garden!

MaryAnn's Eternal Garden

©

Published: February 2014

You can no longer see me, but please know that I am there 
I am the flowers in the garden, I am the wind beneath your hair
The memories that I left behind, shall forever be with you 
As for me I am in heaven now, where my life will start anew

No longer do I suffer 
No longer do I feel pain 
I'm at peace watching you from heaven now
Until we meet again 

I have always loved my flowers 
With nature I was one 
My flowers are in heaven now
As my time on Earth is done

I am planting my roses in heaven
My lilies and daisies too
For I want my garden to be perfect
On the day God calls for you

When you walk through the gates of Heaven 
I will take you by the hand
And lead you to my eternal garden 
Where we will shall never part again!
