I would like to share with you all a poem I wrote as a memorial for my cousin Diana who passed away from cancer back in 98. She was like a second Mom to me and also my best friend.
In loving memory of Diana L. Herbert 1957-1998

Our Own Princess Di

God saw you getting tired
and a cure was not to be,
So He put his arms around you
and whispered "Come to Me".
With tearful eyes we watched
and saw you pass away.
Although we loved you dearly,
we could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us...
He only takes the best.
