Heroes Live Forever...

In spirit she lives on, Forever my hero
Remorse for time lost
As her sweet memory unfolds like fog
clearing the haze of the moment she passed
Forever an afterthought, the aftermath of tragedy

She was beautiful like the rain, so much sadness
Bitterness of a broken heart built up within her
Yet she moved on

Growth of a wildflower
She overcame fires of bridges
Unlike any millinial could possibly ignite

She taught me to soar with broken wings
A black bird sings, like breaking dawn's

Her love spawned mountains
She taught me to climb
Through the toughest times
To plant my feet to the ground
We walk upon

She taught me to strive
For the brightest of lights
She shined so bright, in my broken life
She breathed life like a mothers love
The magnitude of a grandmother
My hero

Unlike any other, her heart sang
Words of pride and strength
No matter the pain

Don't ever give up, "Never give up"
Her last words, burned into my soul
My spirit forever connected
Her life, a mortar for prosperity

Forever my roots, engraved, in her memory
She may be a ghost of the past
But will forever be, a huge part of my future

Forever she lives on, a true hero
For so many lives she touched
With her kindness
she forever shines the brightest
Because true heroes live forever
