A tribute to Heather

Heather is a friend who died as a result of Sickle Cell Anemia on June 3, 2014    I wrote this poem to celebrate her life and honor her memory.  

HEATHER    by Celine Leduc—June 4, 2014

Heather is about health as a sickler*
Heather is a flower sweet an fragrant
Heather is the friend I loved and lost.

Yesterday, you were in pain
Yesterday, you struggled
Yesterday, you passed away.

Today, we** are in pain.
Today, we are struggling
Today, we know you are away.

Heather you are a role model
For those who suffered
For all those sicklers who still suffer.

We remember you laughing at fate, a miracle!
When you cheated death more than once.
You survived had children and a grandson.

We remember your joy of being a grandmother
We remember your smile and your pride
We remember you advice:  Live life

Today, we celebrate your life
Today, we salute you
Today, we remember you!

Eternity is at hand for we will never forget YOU!
Forever remembered in your legacy
Your Children and grandchildren live on.

Yesterday, you were in pain and in Hell
Today, you are in Heaven in the spirit world
You joined the ancestors, we will not FORGET.

*Sickler a person who suffers from Sickle Cell anemia
**We includes all those who knew her, her family extended family and friends.
