A tribute & birthday poem
In my garden, I planted a white tulip plant by the palm tree nearby,
It’s the start of a Little Belle garden close where the sweet birds sing & fly,
White is for the purity of love that you & Irene will always share, that soaring bond that teaches us all how to live in the moment & fully care & share,
Another tulip plant will soon follow near, yellow its color for the luminous happiness, optimism, & enlightenment you both brought us, in times when you faced worry & fear,
And, when I plant I think of your words, “I am still me,” and know, that indeed in heaven you are still you, so continue to guide us all along our path now as we go, here below.
“I am still me,” a statement of strength, survival, presence, will & power, words that will continue to inspire, just as the tulips in this little garden will grow by the hour.
And, as the garden sleeps at night, sometimes nestled in the fog we have here, we will rest and find comfort in knowing Little Belle, little angel, love warrior, that you are watching over us, bringing dreams of merriment & cheer.
So, the message of magic that you & Irene give us is still traveling near & far, your beautiful legend remarkably growing, just as the brightness of your timeless star.
