A Poem by Seriana

For my dear aunt who lost her battle with cancer this past week.



How could I have known it’d be the last time we’d speak?

Casual conversation after many a year…

I hardly knew you,

not like she did,

not like they did.

Yet as old friends we spoke,

and laughed,

and I hugged you good-bye when it was time for you to go.

Never was another thought given that it would be the last.

So many lives were touched by your precious light,

dear, sweet soul.

Your ultimate zest for life,

your carefree approach to every situation,

good and bad,

happy and sad,

were recognized by the lives you secretly touched.


many a saddened heart gathered to celebrate YOU.

On this great Earth, you will forever be missed.

But the warmth of your light will be elsewhere shared,



this amazing, caring, beautiful woman,

My dear mother’s sister,


~AP 5/9/15

The lost of a loved one is hard on everyone but to take in the comfort from the memories that they shared is what test a persons steel. When on a hard day, they will come to us and put a hand on our shoulder and those memories come flooding back. And this poem share the pain that you have felt by the passing of someone dear to you. It was beautifully written and it reads so easily that the reader can almost touch the words as if spoken by themselves.

What a very touching piece of poetry... always hard to say our final goodbyes to a loved one. But this poetic eulogy is a beautiful tribute.
