|A gift to
us like a queen
like a summer when it rains
like a song when silence rings
like the songs that you would sing
Did you know they made me smile
and make me laugh in times like now?
Your life a gem in the grain
the joy of your stories on this day
Like hating being called "tiny" or "cute"
Though your life was larger than you knew
Or maybe you did know and we missed
in seeing you as you are:
Even though some days it will rain
And the rain and numbing silence remain
Do you know your love, your life, a gift we have?
Do you know your song will never end?
