"Her Fight"

Updated: Apr 27, 2021

I thought this day would never be

And I could see your smiling face

But I know you spoke to the Lord asking for His grace

Lord give me a clean life

She spoke one day

Falling to her knees she begged and prayed

Lord let me walk with you

She called in pain

Can I talk like you?

She proclaimed

Lord let us be like you

And do what we’re supposed to do

Strong woman she was, her spirit so true

Her strength in each of us

God knew what to do

Even though it hurts, we must get through

Our hearts may be shattered and tears will fall

But our angel gained her wings

And it was time to find her way home

"A tree is symbolic of nurturing energies, of the fruit it bears."

I come from a family of strong, intelligent and beautiful women. For that, I am forever grateful. This post is dedicated to my Aunt Ida Fisher who recently passed away. Death is never is easy to deal with. That is why I chose this tree. It symbolizes so many things but most importantly it symbolizes strength. It represents the recovery of illness, family, stability and blessings. This tree shows that no matter what comes it's way it will stand strong because its roots run deep just like my family.
