Sarah's Smile

by Thomas K. Hunt

You’ve headed into battle more times than I can recall
and in between each skirmish your smile has said it all
You’re a fighter and a trooper, your one of a kind
With all the hearts behind you, you have nothing but time

Your smile lights up the world
So much courage in such a wonderful girl
Countless smiles from me when I see a pic you
and a hurt shared by so many for what you are going through

You’ll face your battles and be the victor in the war
You’ll come out on top even better than before
I expect to see your smiles shared upon all of the walls
You’ll be sending them out for years to come with little stories about them all


Author's Note: Dedicated to Sarah Turcotte O'Day

Poignant tribute poem, Thomas. Quite a lady by the sound of it. Well captured!

Love the title. She sounds like a go getter and a positive force in life.
