I am Catherine and have written poems all my life. They've been written to lift others up, in celebration, love, about loss, and passion.

My heart is full, from the love you gave,

Tears do flow when I'm no longer brave.

Memories of you will last forever,

Until we meet again and be together.

In God's arms you can safely rest,

His grace covers all, for thou are blest.

A prayer for comfort was how we first met,

Now prayers of farewell are at your sunset.

You won my heart and nurtured it with care,

With tender hugs, you were my Teddy Bear.

Jackie, as OUR song goes...

I don't want to close my eyes

I don't want to fall asleep

Cause I'll miss you babe

And I don't want to miss a thing!
