Tribute to Eva Wafford
For all who lost heroes

She entered the dark uncharted waters of widowhood
her son was spared in the semi truck wreck that killed
Her husband through him she was saved and I had a replacement mother
And a guiding light that she was able to provide in spite
of her pain

In your soul freshly the wind of death did blow.
Cold eerie shadows marched against your tender broken heart.
What defense could this onslaught repel agony’s volcanic flow.
Ominous well filled with grief from this weight no relief.

The child the grim reaper did spare.
Only after leaving the body bruised and in despair.
From this broken body drops of mercy started to make the mother well.
I held your trembling frame today this memory rings sweet as a bell.

Streets and houses without number fill the land.
I can’t help when I look to recall memories grand.
Now they are but dreams that ache in the night.
Images that over ride the present in their glory I take flight.

Brush aside caution raise your voice as a trumpet.
They live only in yesterdays even so indelibly they wrote their stories.
We hold our children we cling only a moment as mist on the summit.
Your life Eva continues to build the next generation.

Your voice is heard in the breath of your grandchildren.
Wonders they spin from golden thread, now that you have gone ahead.
Your spirit glows in the fire that warms the house against winter.
Summer’s cool breeze not sent by chance she doe’s tenderly incite.

Death silently said what I already knew.
To me you were always immortal you were bigger than life
Many were the days when the wind of storms blew
Those who know us feel the calm; this is only your life on review
