This work has reached the exceptional level
My beautiful daughter.


by Eric1

We woke this morning in darkness and gloom,
We opened the door to your empty bedroom'
The Minnie mouse duvet lay over your bed,
over Mickey mouse pillows, where you lay your head.

Your personal things still lay all around,
we listen for you, but don't hear a sound,
You're not here anymore, God has taken you away
but your memories are here, and here they will stay.

Memories of a beautiful young girl, who grew,
into a beautiful young lady, that thousands knew,
They've written their thoughts upon your timeline,
The words of kindness, flow like a good wine.

We read 'bubbly' and 'happy, a fantastic friend,
gorgeous and stunning, the words never end,
As you can imagine, our hearts are broken for life,
To know we can't hold you, it cuts like a knife.

For the past fifteen months, you've gone through hell,
and yet most of your friends could never tell,
You fought it so bravely but it wasn't to be,
for now you're in heaven, and finally free.

We know God will love you, keep you in his care,
but he's only a guardian till we meet you there,
So goodnight darling Vickie, you'll never be far,
because we'll look to the sky, see a new shining star.


I know this is sentimental hogwash, and I know that there is no meter, no flow, no rhythm, But I wanted to share this with my friends on here, as most of you know, Vickie lost her brave fight to Leukaemia on December 10th last year.
Today would have been Vickies 25th birthday, this poem was written on December 11th the day after Vickie died, just wanted to share on this special day. xxx
