it started with one random act of kindness
and before long, our souls would be forever linked
a mother, a sister, a friend to the end
you are so dearly loved, my darling BJ
(mere words just can't express)
painful - i suffer, as long as you do
so i send infinite love and pray that you feel it
my heart overflows as twilight creeps in
but i know JAH will cradle you in the palm of His hands
as you tread ever so softly on the pillow of your breath.
peace. be still.
i love you. for always.

*UPDATE: Thanks to all of you who touched BJ's life so deeply through your loving words, here and via post. She treasured each of your cards. It is unfortunate that I must share with you that our beloved BJ transitioned on Sunday, October 2, 2011. As Empress Christina so aptly put it, "An angel went home on Sunday morning."
I would be unmindful not to mention that it was also my dear sisterfriend Doris' birthday. I know that she was there at the gates waiting to greet BJ into an oasis of everlasting bliss. One love.
