Poem: Favorite Flower

Posted: October 24, 2012 - 3:04pm

Favorite Flower

By Bill Lowe, Sterling


A favorite flower has recently passed,

but cherished memories will forever last.

Your life here on earth went all too fast.


Some friendships last for a short while,

but every inch with you, I count a mile;

every minute, a day; every word, a file.


Whether an old friend or someone new,

we all felt important when close to you.

Your regard for others was always true.


God blessed us with you for many a day,

then He called you to a garden far away,

but in our hearts is where you will stay.


Yes, fond memories we’ll each one keep;

they travel far and wide, long and deep.

What you have sown, others shall reap.


Farewell Dorothy Westphal,

May 10, 1921 – October 13, 2012
