When You Miss A Loved One
By Sheri Stanley and Kristina Hooper
Just take a little stroll into the garden
to the Dynamite Crepe Myrtle.
Let its radiance shine upon your face.
Relax and feel the breeze, touch the smile,
and know they are there by your side.
A flutter of tears soon overwhelms
to ease the sorrow that penetrates
through your falling tears;
every tear is a memory,
gently caressing the aching heart
frozen by grief, trapped in sorrow.
The warmth permeates,
and slowly the heart begins to heal again,
a sign that life is present and worth living.
Just as the Crepe Myrtle stands strong through storms,
so shall we survive and carry on.
