It’s been two weeks since Sonnie passed away. They say time heals all wounds and I can say that for myself. I still think about her, but there is a certain finality at a funeral that makes you realize that it’s real, they are gone, and life still goes on. I always thought it was rude for people to laugh or birds to sing or for the sun to rise and set as normal after someone has passed on. But that’s life, it moves on.
It helps to think that she no longer dwells in that mortal body that is buried, that her spirit lives on somewhere beautiful, with no pain and sorrow.
She had so many friends, touched so many lives, if the turn-out for her send off is anything to go by. It’s clear that she blessed so many hearts. It was a beautiful send off for a beautiful soul.
Rest in peace, Sonnie.
Close your eyes little girl
You’re a princess now
You own this world
Twirling in your twirly dress
You’re the loveliest far above the rest
You build your castles in the skies
Stars reflecting off your eyes
And angels sing on silver clouds
And no one cries screams or shouts
