Tears of Remembrance: Dedicated to the Memory of Sarai Sierra
Tears of Remembrance
Wife of one,
Mother of two,
One of three children.
Generous to all,
loving to many,
and trusting to a fault.
not usually so serious,
brought a smile
to all she would entreat
to see her numerous and amazing feats.
A photographer of much,
a respecter of all,
took a terrible fall
that brought sadness to us all.
she will never,
take a stand by her man
through life’s many demands.
Or be able to hold her children’s hands
as they wade through obstacles difficult to understand.
As if banned,
from the most precious things in life.
We miss her dearly!
The mother, daughter, cousin, friend and wife.
Lord help us cope
with all this “smoke”.
Help us stand
Cause I really don’t understand!
It just hurts so bad.
Dear family, friends, and readers,
This poem is dedicated to the memory of Sarai Sierra. Even though many of us are struggling with the gruesome and tragic details that surround her death, we remember her not as she died but for who she was. We remember her for her influence, constant presence, dedication to her family, passion for food, and love for God. Sarai is someone who we all loved and will miss dearly. The many prayers, best wishes, and concern that is being shown to our family is greatly appreciated and felt. There is nothing better to have in difficult times then a community of people who are there to support you through any means they can. We just want to say thank you for everything and share with you a glimpse of the wonderful family member Sarai was and what makes her special to us. Through the pain, we smile for the blessing she was to all she met and all that she stood for.
