Ode to Sarah

Sarah, Sarah

You were the light

of our days, and 

the spirit of the team.

One pair less, of basketball shoes.

One ball less, not in your hand.

One life less, that we love and need.

One hardship down, that was not asked for.

Please help me God

to understand,




In a meadow, 

wouldn't you pick 

the prettiest flower?

One beautiful soul, that we love so much.

One lesson in life, for us to grow.

One more angel, to stand by God.

One more year, without you here,

but where you're chosen to be.

Thank you God 

for helping me

to understand,
