How dare you begin with such a roar!
This month of May is a Lion…
Roaring, growling and then standing proud.
No matter how hard I try to prepare
The end of April starts the roller coaster.
Seasonal allergies will kick in…
Like a last ditch effort to switch gears.
The pinched nerve in my back reared it’s head
Hoping to derail the oncoming storm.
This year was different!
The anniversary of your death, Dear Sis,
Felt like a fuzzy blanket
Wrapped tight about.
The ache of your absence still strong
Yet ever stronger the feeling of your presence.
Within a handful of days
Wishing Mom and Dad “Happy Anniversary”!
Then the greatest news from U of O Law School,
The first Carrie Murray Memorial Scholarship has been awarded!
Wave after wave of emotions…
Your birthday is just around the corner…
I see those brilliant blue eyes
Filled with a true zest and love of life.
Memories will continue to flood our minds
Strengthening our resolve
To celebrate your life and memory.
You are watching from above
Your touch felt by ray of sun or touch of breeze.
Love you, forever and always, CareBear.
