A Poem for Mary Murphy

 

Mary is a lady from the Sunshine State

In my opinion, she's really great

although we've never met

she's a lady I won't  forget

took the time, my email to read

understood my heartfelt need

unselfishly of her time she gave

to assist me in finding my father's grave

alas, though she gave it her best, no grave was found

were his ashes scattered to the winds or upon the ground

thanks be to God and dear, sweet Mary

she answered and did not tarry

her light will forever shine

to me, she's an angel divine

About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 38 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired almost 17 years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John, and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia and Haley, and Isaac, our only grandson, all blessings from God. We have four cats; Mr. Peabody, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
