She Lives Today...

She lives today
and I see her smiling broadly
She lives today
and yet she does not know me
She lives today,
my angel come to find me

I know it’s not her
but a stranger
who reflects her glory
I miss that face
I miss that smile
she is not here to tell
my lost angel girl

I rejoice that she was my own
wonderful daughter
A rare light
aglow in my broken heart
forever

She lives today
for a moment
in the face of a stranger
smiling broadly

My own lost angel
come to find me

She Lives Today...

Artist's Description

Life sometimes, throws us a humbling curve ball when we least expect.

Yesterday, we had just finished lunch at a wee seaside cafe when the waitress told
us our bill had already been paid! She motioned to an older man sat in
the corner.

Long story short, I seemed that I was the double of his daughter who had passed away. I was so taken aback by the kindness he had shown us in the face of his loss.
We thanked him and wished him well and then he left.

Later on, I kept thinking about how he must have felt, how any parent must feel at the loss of a child. I hope these few words are a fitting tribute to the kindly stranger and his lost girl. We will never forget him or his kindness.
