~Poems for Holly~

To Holly
From Jess

I never got to tell you
The words I hoped you knew
About how incredible a friend you were
And how I'd always love you

You touched my life
In unspeakable ways
Helped me out on those tough nights
And gave me inspiration for my days

You'll never know what you did for me
But every night I pray
That you're looking down on me from heaven
And hearing all I wanted to say

"I miss you, Holly
You were such a great friend,
I wish our time together
Never had to come to an end."

So now I try to go on
And live my life each day
Remembering to always tell the ones I love
What I know I want to say

By J. M. Looper

The angels bowed their heads
Brief sadness filled their eyes
For they knew of all the joy
About to be taken from our lives

In selfishness we mourned and
Grieved for our loss
Not caring about the lessons we would learn
It was at too great of a cost

As we cried and weeped here on earth
Holly was lifted to heaven in a beautiful rebirth
The angels welcomed her in, spreading their wings
And showed her God's splendor and all his majestic things

Then for a brief moment, she stopped to look down
The angels looked at her without making a sound
In worry, she approached the head seraphim
And begged him to let her help her family and friends

She could see their pain and suffering
And it made her want to cry
Their worlds had been shattered
At the moment she died

The angel looked down and gave her a smile, saying
"Things will get better, just give them some time.
God will help them, and so can you
Watching them, comforting them, there's so much you can do."

So as we look up and pray for relief
We should show Holly more than just our grief
Show her the things that we know she'd want to see
And be all the things that she'd want us to be

In Memory Of Holly - Submitted by Shannon Stusse

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free,
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took His hand when I heard Him call,
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work, or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way,
I found that peace at the close of the day.

If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah, yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I've savored much,
Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch.

Perhaps my times seemed all too brief,
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me,
God wanted me now. ~He Set Me Free~


Tied to machines
Mechanical beating and breathing
And her eyes are pulled close
Purgatory of fixed hospital beds
Fly away little angel
Into the placidity of the stars
The pinpoints of divinty hung in velvet space
Pulled by oblivious gravity
To the gentle ark of Heaven
Fly away little angel
Don't cry for us as we retire
To a life without
Just fly, fly away to the bosom of the infinite

I Love You ~ Chad Steffens

~Submitted by Kallie Seier on Holly's Sixteenth Birthday ~

Sixteen years ago today
God blessed us all with you
Naturally smiling as you came
But forcefully as you go

We think of all the fun times
And a smile brightens our face
As we remember the night of flour
Where only white covered your gorgeous face

Cross Country wasn't the same
Without you by our side
But we know deep down
You were watchin' down from up on high

We ran the best we could
'Cause we knew you would too
Thanks for sending us the courage
To run it all for you

God gave us a special strength
To watch you go above
For our time will come
When we will join you with Love

For Your Tomorrow...

I have walked this earth.
I have taken from this life all I need.
The day will come when I leave this place.
You ~ who have survived me, will remember me
for I was your ~ today ~

Now, I wish to be your tomorrow.
For all that I have taken from this life
I can give back to you.

Let my soul travel to a place beyond,
Leave my shell for those who can learn from me.
To know I may take away the pain.
You may one day suffer.

I may be a part of a answer to a cure.
To an epidemic you may be plagued with,
I may be able to help the suregeons and practitioners.
Discover a new and better way to treat you;
This and more will give me peace and serenity.

One day you will bury me, cremate me.
Or act ceremoniously to acknowledge my death.
But one day, you will live abetter because of me.
I was your today, ~ Now I Will Be Your Tomorrow ~
