Another Angel Flies Away by Diana Pierce (In loving memory of my Aunt Lila Johnston)

Precious stories from long ago,

She’d proudly tell to let us know,

Bless every child in our clan,

With love like a devoted fan;

==========================

Of course, I knew this from the start,

Like grandma, with a golden heart.

Like mom, with her warmest blessings,

Calmly taught me wise learned lessons;

=================================

Family ties run hand and hand,

She tried to make us understand.

I do not know how I would be,

Without her looking out for me,

=========================

Thanks, Aunt Lila for all the fuss,

You will be missed by all of us.

Family and friends grieve today.

Another angel flies away.

      A lovely poem as tribute to your aunt. Tinged with sadness, but happy memories.

      Thank you, BlossomSB. These memorial poems make me think of how lucky I have been to know them and it makes it a little easier to cope with idea of losing them. Writing poetry has always been a great release for me.
