Autumn is Here!
Autumn is here; you can smell it in the air.
The leaves are just beginning to turn.
Days are shorter and weather’s colder.
For beloved Chris, we continue to yearn!
This had been a year of major events.
On the national scene we have a new president.
Grandma Jan and Gramps celebrated 50 wedded years;
Wondering just where all those years went!
Donnie turned 90 and a party was held.
Chris’ dad Brian and Ruth are now married.
Kyle and his family left Boston town;
To Charleston, SC their possessions they carried.
Next week Chris’ step-sister will marry Mike
For those in our family it will be bittersweet
Because we know we will never see
Our Chris with a bride, oh so sweet!
Autumn is here; we must be reconciled.
Many things change, just like the seasons.
We wonder sometimes about life’s events;
For Chris’ death, there still seems no reason!
Grandma Jan, September, 2009
