 Romantic Notions By Ivy Rose

IMPRINTS OF LIFE

Just eleven years old
smile of dappled sunshine
joy of angels' heralded
who knew?
that your innocent radiance
would take its place among the stars

Just 24 years old
smile of a nephew of courage
survivor of a hit and run driver
who knew?
that your youthful exuberance
would leave to find a better world

Just 69 years old
smile confined to a wheelchair
strength of demeanor, joy of living
who knew?
that this family reunion would be
the last before you were called Home

So many memories
scattered yet woven
into the times swept over,
into the days of yore
who knew?
only imprints of life remain behind
