R.I.P. Pat

Pieces of hearts taken with you,
gently tucked under your wings.
Your laughter echos as we see your face,
through all of the memories your name brings.

Was there any doubt of the impression you left?
Or the light that shines through your soul.
A mega city honours a mega woman,
With a plaque on a wall and a street named Cole.

Your children and grand so beautiful in this life,
each leaving their mark however they can.
How proud you must be as you watch from above,
Vic; forever carrying your name. And Matt; now a man.

It has been 13 years since you went away,
On that cold winter night; January 7.
Encircled by love ones, preparing to take your flight,
Your last breath marked, as you drifted to Heaven.

R.I.P. Pat
