Grateful (A Poem)

 For every day you were in my life.

  I am grateful

 For every tear, you wiped from my eyes.

I am grateful

 You were there for me when I was lost and alone.

You loved me when I was right or wrong.

 Your advice and wisdom helped me grow.

Proud of every moment and hour we spent talking on the phone, or our weekly visits.

I am grateful to God for you being my Aunt, big sister, and second mother.

I am grateful for every moment I had with you in my life.

And even though this hurts more than words can express.

Grateful for the life you lived.

I love you Auntie Rest in Paradise.
