Death Poem

I wrote this poem for my Aunt Charlie Jones because she was the absolute funniest person in our family and always made everybody in our family happy even when they were down. So Auntie I love you and wanted people to know about how great of a person you were.

I Love You

Your past was no fairy tale
I thank you for coming through
That's why I made
A special poem for you
I put you through many struggles
But to you, I'm blessed
I didn't have anything I wanted
But you always did your best
You worked long hours
To make ends meet
You put food on the table
And shoes on my feet
To others you don't know
You may not be a star
But as long as I know
That's exactly what you are
You may not be physically strong
But you're the strongest woman I know
Because when it comes to love and care
That's when you let your strengths show,
Although it may not seem like it
I truly do,
That's why I'm taking the time to say
Auntie, I Love You!!!
