Goodbye Teresa
December 30, 2015

My sister, Teresa, died
And suddenly I cried
Blinded by life's foresight
Of God's given death right
Like a thief in the night

Teresa's name on a sympathy card
Obituary death notices hits hard
Painful grief is not ignored
Cuts a wound leaving a sore
A pain I never felt before

Loving in life is but a lie
For real love arrives
When a loved one dies
As life and death collide
A mystery only God knows why

My sister, Teresa, goodbye

Teresa's Things
In memory of Teresa Smith

Teresa's things are there
Memories are everywhere
Proudly sits an antique chair
Beside a heirloom chest of wares
Dresser draws unpacked and bare
Closet clothes no longer to wear
Unlock jewelry box of treasure fare
Loving wedding rings are spared
Computer screen of dark software
Singer Sewing machine threadbare
Tool chest left for home repair
Ship-shape tidy the fishing gear
Souvenirs and mementos tear
At my heart in parting prayer
Please handle with care
Teresa's things
When she lived there

Happy Birthday Kiss

Remember birthdays of the past
Memories of childhood last
As little girls it begins
Birthday wishes from the twins
To give their older sis
Happy birthday kiss
Years bring many birthdays
Sisters part separate ways
Today birthdays may remain
Yet are just not the same
Birthday wishes miss
Happy birthday kiss

Teresa
(to the tune of Mother)

T is for the times I changed your diaper

E is for the eating that you do

R is for the reason for your crying

E is for the energy in you

S is for the answer to our prayers

Put them All together it's TERESA

My daughter who I give loving care

Teresa Smith
My heart was searching for someone
That I could love
Someone who would love me too
I found it in your heart, Teresa
When you said, "I love you"
My arms were longing for someone
That I could hold
Someone who was good and true
I found it in your arms, Teresa
When you said, "I love you"
My life is happy with someone
That I have found
Someone who brought skies of blue
I found my happiness, Teresa
When I said, "I love you, too"
