Meriden Poet: REMEMBERING

Meriden Poet: REMEMBERING



Every year about this time,

I write a very special rhyme

for my daughter who suddenly passed away,

one early morning in the month of May.

She lives forever in my heart,

where I know we will never part

She often visits as I sleep,

with butterfly wings in a purple so deep

Singing to me throughout the night,

she then leaves me in the morning light

Sadly, she's gone....too young to go,

just as it happened ten years ago.

- Elaine MacMullen, Meriden
