Tag: bittersweet


Good day, team.
The challenge this week is short and bittersweet due to the death of my mother in law. Jean White was a modern woman who lived her 93 years with grit and humor. She leaves a legacy of many years of community service, a successful career in the insurance industry, and a healthy family with lots of grand and great grandchildren. In her memory, I am posting this poem my husband wrote as a result of her passing.

Poem on Aging

The vanguard is down

Arthur Lloyd, reckless father

Jean Vivian, valiant mother

Both gone

I am drafted, trained poorly

And sent to the front

Suddenly in change and clueless

In a fight that cannot be won

Purple scars cover recent wounds

With more to come surely

before the final blow

Perhaps now its just a matter

of earning style points

~David White

Have a good week,
