Email Poem | Today's Poetry

She was Latina, assertive and more
Beloved daughter, sister adored
Who served the force for 18 years
Today her loss will rain great tears

She brought beauty to streets unkind
Inspired hope, the lost she'd find
Bringing warmth and strong convictions
To teens exposed to wrong addictions

Fashion sensed and lady who
Loved Salsa and soul mate too
Engaged to wed Carlos her love
Today she waits for him above

Daughter Jazmin, her pride and joy
With eyes like mom, knockout, oh boy
Would make straight A's and honor roll
College, mom's plan, would now enfold

Isabel her birth name given
To friends Izzie will go on living
For Heaven holds what we cannot
A place for Angels, who earned her spot

SALEA member, woman, Blue Knight
Now sleeps at peace where all good Knights
Share and feast on banquet grand
Forever Izzie, safe in God's hands

Dear Jazmin, Mimi, Carlos, Patricia my mother
Remember me always I'm just in another
Place you will know when GOD calls for you
Dear friends and partner one day you will too

In memory of Philadelphia Police Officer Isabel "Izzie" Nazario
