In Loving Memory of Trixie Reagan
I don't remember how it happened,
The moment her heart touched mine,
She was always one I relied on,
To be there for me - rain or shine.
She had such a loving and cheerful heart,
And always met me with a hug and smile,
I always knew that if I were in need,
She would be the one to go the extra mile.
She started out as just my teacher,
But we quickly became more to each other,
She looked out for me like I was her own,
She even said she was my "second mother."
Laughing, crying, celebrating, or comforting,
She was there for my every up and down,
She was even right by my side,
When I stood in church in my wedding
gown.
No matter how busy our lives were,
Our bond was never torn apart,
Because ours went deeper than simple
friendship,
Our connection lived deep within the heart.
Anyone that knew her would say,
She is a person you cannot forget,
And i don't know how I can ever accept,
My world without Trixie in it.
I only hope that she truly understood,
How very special she was to me,
And that she was more than a great friend,
She really was....my family.
