A Tribute to Aunt Janet
By David Smith February 14, 2009
Aunt Janet was the glue that held a family in place
She talked of her brothers and Emily and Grace
How things were in Nova Scotia in her Childhood so grand
Then to the present where the Seaway has a stand.
Raised here kids and chatted a storm
Her opinions flew and character was formed
Her love and attention filled more than a room
Now an emptiness where she radiated and bloomed.
She touched the lives of people around.
Being part of the family my acceptance was found
What she gave and received had a vivid mark
Memories about her will forever glow in the dark
She touched all her loved ones in a unique sort of way
Able to tease her and amuse her at play
She knew she was loved. Her home had fill
Children , grandchildren, friends, her greatest thrill.
The next generation is heavily upon us. Make way for the new.
Her maturity and experiences are building blocks we can add too.
Aunt Janet, knowing her, is a priceless gift.
How we use her advice, can be our greatest lift.
