For Willie from RoseVoc2

For Willie
November 22, 2011

You are God given
Without you, I wouldn’t know
What real love means

What is to be a mother
What is to be strong
How to love the rain
How to gently touch dew on petals
How to find joy in small things
How to write letters
How to kneel and pray

For me, you are a genius
And you shared a lot
And though your imperfections
God, did the rest for you
You never failed
Because I have loved you
All my life.

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus,
We pray for the living and the dead 
Have mercy on us,
We trust in You.
