A friend was lost today.
I just saw her and she smiled at me.
I remember how she had touched my life.

I was shocked to find that she was gone.
Now I will never see her again.

Yes, I fear for her children.
Without a parent they face new risks.

I first met her long ago.
After many battles she was carrying through.

I am sad for those who knew her better.
While I could meet the same fate,
I pray for safety, guidance and protection.
I look for help and always find hope.
