Life without you is like life without air
A hurricane would fall if I bottled each tear
Every day together you enriched my life
Each moment without you cuts deep like a knife

Your smile your resilience I will never forget
You lived your life bravely without  much regret
Like a flower in it’s prime with beauty of soul and mind
Now you’ve been exalted to see Jesus  divine

As kids, you combed my hair and was a big sister to me
Oh how you loved the ocean  and drove like a boss lady
Playing cards and domino with your uncles and friends
You were a pearl of great price why did it all have to end

Your dream was to by 30 to see your child’s face
And God heard from heaven and blessed us with grace
So although you’re gone a piece of you remains
You were always a Queen so God called you to reign

Life without you is like life without air
The memories in my heart I’ll always hold dear
It feels so unreal this loss beyond deep
Still hoping I’m dreaming and you’ll wake me from sleep

So goodbye nelly my bestie my friend
Though I weep outwardly, I know this is not the end
In the sweet by & by I know my God will heal
Secrets of life and death, one day God will reveal
My niece's best friend passed away suddenly recently in childbirth but before she died she named her daughter Grace. I wrote this poem from my niece's perspective for her bestie, it was one of the hardest poems I've ever had to write both young ladies grew up before my eyes and were like my own daughters RIP Nelly
