Endless Grace

An angel flew into our lives,
to give life meaning so love shines,
opened our hearts to swiftly dive,
her essence perfectly divine.

Sweet sunny smile created dawn,
lessons that came made us all strong,
fears that these days may soon be gone,
formed prayers for joys to prolong.

An angel flew into our lives,
to help us glow from deep inside,
she gave us great purpose and drive,
taught all she touched to let zest guide.

A spirit composed of true light,
blessed us for a short space in time,
miracle presence filled with might,
twirled in our minds to peaceful chimes.

An angel exited our lives,
flew high above beyond the sky,
finally free to play and strive,
kisses the tears that slip our eyes.

Fond memories with us each day,
mental pictures will not erase,
Infinite bonds could never sway,
grateful to have danced with pure Grace.

– Grace Y. Estevez – Reddy

I received an email last week from Keith Allen of The Nostalgic Italian. Keith was asking if I have written any poems with death as the subject, so that he could read it during his 11 year old sister-in-law’s memorial service. I had already read about little Grace on his blog and felt a need to write a personalized one for her. Grace passed away on the morning of October 21, 2022. My thoughts and prayers are with Keith and his family. Sending infinite strength and love their way. πŸ’•
