through words

I met you through words. Words written by pressing computer keys. Words thought through in our minds. Words rehearsed before they were spoken.

I got to know you through songs. Songs you chose then posted becuase they meant so much to you. Songs I loved too. We shared the love of the ocean. We were sad and concerned together over the oil that spilled over our shores.

I lost you through words. Words written by Trish pressing the computer keys. So sad never to have seen your picture or heard your voice.

I was happy that I did know you but for a short while if only through words and song and love of the ocean. I'll miss your words and your songs. I hope I always remember how you can change by knowing someone if only for a short while.

Rest in peace Lisa. I hope your garden blooms constantly in heaven, and the turtles and dolphins swim for you to enjoy.
