A lifetime of living
And loving
Just doesn't fit
In the package.

The heart, too full.
The tears, too small.
The words, too few
To contain it all.

The loss, too great.
The grief, too new.
The wait, too long.
Dee, I'll miss you.

The Passing, peaceful.
The eyes, blind--
Full of grief,
Left behind.

The Passing

The Passing, peaceful
The Ache, remains
The Heart, breaks
And Grief, stains.
