 Elsie`s Poetry


~~ JOSIE ~~

You have gone and left us all alone
A better person I have never known,
A heart of gold and always a smile
This was you it was just your style.

If help was needed you were prepared
Always on hand to show how you cared,
You were always so loving and giving
So kind hearted and a zest for living.

We loved playing netball it was our religion
We loved it a lot more than just a smidgen,
Home and away games we loved them all
We would go anywhere to play our netball.

Kindness was your strongest trait for sure
As someone`s plight you couldn`t ignore,
Your heart was soft and made of pure gold
Totally immeasurable to an extent untold.

But life dealt you some terrible blows
And more than once you hit the lows,
You always got up and bounced right back
As you knew you couldn`t afford to crack.

You`d borne so much throughout your life
The heartache you`d suffered was like a knife,
A much lesser person would have gone under
But how you got through it I often wonder.

The world is a much darker place without you
As you have left us all heartbroken and blue,
I can`t believe I won`t ever see you again
And this causes my heart so much pain.

A light went out today but a star was born
When from our lives you were sadly torn,
You leave a hole that just can`t be filled
And from our eyes our tears have spilled.

Heaven gained an angel this very day
For Josie got her wings and flew away,
Goodnight and God bless to you I will say
And in my heart you will forever stay.



For my friend Jofus from her Ellie May
