Three Word Wednesday

Sorry this is a little sad because I was sad when I wrote this.

Cling; verb: (Of a person or animal) hold on tightly to; adhere or stick firmly or closely to; remain very close to; remain persistently or stubbornly faithful to something; be overly dependent on someone emotionally.
Murmur; noun: A soft, indistinct sound made by a person or group of people speaking quietly or at a distance; a softly spoken or almost inaudible utterance; The quiet or subdued expression of a particular feeling by a group of people; a rumor; verb: Say something in a low, soft, or indistinct voice; make a low continuous sound.
Taken; verb: Occupy (a place or position); (of a person) already be married or in an emotional relationship; suddenly strike or afflict; be attracted or charmed by.

It first it starts as a murmur
It can’t possibly be true
For no God would have taken
One as young as you

I cling to the belief
That it isn’t a fact
Until I see your obituary
Your face in a picture
In front of me
No doubt, no protestations
For it is obviously true.
Like a thief in the night
Something crept in
To whisk you away

My birthday was last week,
And you gave me wishes,
I’ll treasure every day,
For now you’ve gone away,
Dear friend I’ll always remember you
Your warm heart and your winning smile
Will dwell forever in my memories
And in my heart, empty space
Without you in my life.

RIP Rose July29,1959- May30,2012

For My Best Friend Rose

If it rained in heaven you'd feel my tears
I wish you hadn't gone so soon, I fear
We are supposed to be the same age
Yet you won't turn the page
And have your birthday again
And I don't know when
I'll see you again.

I heard from you on my birthday last week
And thought I take a peek
On what you were doing today
To find you were gone away
Stolen by some unknown thing
Oh the pain, that did bring.

I thought we'd get together
We were birds of a feather 
I'd visit you someday
And we laugh and say
That though time had passed
We were still friends together at last

I remember times together singing 
All the time the joy it was bringing
Of laughter shared and friends we made
In the blink of the eye
We had strong ties
Because of you dear Rose

You were kind and sweet
Inclusiveness was your feat
You made everyone feel content
To be themselves, you were heaven sent
Not loaned to us long enough
We wanted more of that same stuff

Your leaving us leaves a hole a crater wide
All my insides feel tumbled up inside
My heart feels betrayed by forces unknown
My eyes leak with tears underflow
As I try hard not to cry
And just remember and sigh
And hear your gentle voice one last time

"Be strong my friends and mourn me not
Remember my gentle heart and the peace I sought"

I'm trying it's a battle to not feel robbed
When such an angel leaves you sob
And mourn the loss of time and words
Not said, one's not heard

So thank you my friend for being there
Through thick and thin, for being so fair
For being a loving friend
No one could forget
Thank you Rose 
Always my beloved Friend.✿♡✿
Forever more

RIP Rose July 27,1959 - May 30,2012

Prayer for a friend who is ill

Give her strength
And her family power

So hope can fight and win

This illness that came suddenly

And made her fight

So she can defeat this silent disease.

God hear our prayer

People really care about her
It is safe to say
She makes a difference every day
She such an inspiration
To all who know her and all who will
Please send her back to us
Make her well today
God hear our prayer.

God hear our prayer
For someone very dear
A friend to all
Someone who is always there
When someone needs a call
A loving hand , a smile, a word
She's there for us, she's always heard

Please heed our plea

Grant her strength and fight
She needs your loving heart
To mend her broken body
For now we see she's
Ravaged with an illness
She wrestling so hard to win
But she could use your loving hand
To heal and renew
Mind and spirit

(If you need to use this prayer go ahead and use it and please say a prayer for my writer friend Karen.)
