A WORTHY CONSOLATION
The aura you let behind,
Still, it lingers on—
For all the years you lived,
Now it resounds like a song—
Play on sweet old one,
As you find your life in the world beyond
Now we wish for you with every step
We think of you in every breath,
And still, uphold the virtues you shared with us.
Now is not the time to cry—
But our heart can’t help our human frailties—
So we weep!
But we are comforted
Knowing that you lived a life worth exaltation—
And you’ll always be in our hearts—
A worthy consolation!
TO MY LATE GRANDMOTHER. REST IN PEACE, MRS. THERESA RENNER
