This poem was inspired by an online associate's need for a special tribute to her beloved Aunt.
For Sandy's Auntie Em
Throughout the years, you’ve been a friend
Your smile has warmed my days
Upon your strength, I can depend
You’re beside me, always
You fill my life with endless love
With joy, beyond compare
A blessing given from above
I’m grateful you are there.
I may not always find the words
I’m yearning to express
But my feelings need to be heard
So, now I will confess
You’ve claimed a special place inside
No one could ever touch
My gratitude can’t be denied
I need you, oh, so much.
My dearest Aunt, I hope you see
The difference you have made
You mean the entire world to me
And I would never trade
The special moments we have spent
From my life’s very start
You are a treasure, Heaven sent
Thank you, with all my heart.

|I had seen this before, but it wasn't until recently that it tugs at my heart. This describes my late Aunt Rose to a tee, but I never told her that, and 3 weeks I got a call that she had passed away, I couldn't believe it. This is beautiful and a reminder to tell those we love how much we care while they're still here to hear it.
