A Poem by George Love

A memorial for the daughter of a friend




Was all it took

Was over so soon

A life assumed with years to go

One bright flash and all was gone

Save for loved ones

Pondering this fate


Should say something

Words refuse

Flowing not

For too much has flowed

That life now gone


Chances taken maybe

Fate tempted possible

Only one might

Know the truth

Keeps tight the lips


Farewell so sudden

Goodbye too final

Sleep too innocent

Love too deep

And death too certain


Comfort never more

The one dread fear

That one held so dear

Might this night now never

Come home once more


Rest In Peace

You journey ended

Left us to wonder

How numbered our days



In honor of Kelsie Trobaugh who died tragically on March 20, 2010 at age 17.  May you rest in peace child.

So sad,.....and sorry I am. A good write, making the reader part of the sad event, thank you for sharing. I'm not passing, at 70 like it or not I'm at the end of my rope, so many dreams and trips I have to cancel. Take care.
