    She lived.....

    Adorned in flamboyant spring
    Unaware of the approaching winter
    And unrestrained by the snow....
    She rose early to kiss the morning
    As the sky reflected her youth
    Years fled
    While her clock stood still

    She lived...

    Beauty bathed her naked skin
    And battled autumn's tinge
    Bright smiles decorated her spirit
    Even in midnight peril

    She lived...

    She ran the race against time
    Now she rest on an angel's wing
    Trodding the clouds that lead to God
    Alive despite her death

    She lives.

    Dedicated to "Aunt Von" Crutcher (8/12/50- 10/26/08)
    Rest In Peace.

    I wish we all could live this way, welcoming each day, truly evidence that life is precious. My condolences. What a beautiful dedication as I'm sure she's smiling down on you.

    Beautiful dedication!

    Loss of a loved one is heartfelt, but there is a comfort in knowing they lived their life to the fullest and now, an even fuller life in the presence of the Lord.


    Thank you for sharing this beautiful poetic celebration of her life with us.


    Be Blessed!

    brevity..
    smiling away the facial scars
    auras
    of autumn straightening
    emotional disfigurements..
    somewhere
    the wind sends me a message
    that life is my only chance to conquer
    for in death my victory will be sealed.
