THE STRONGEST GIRL I EVER KNEW

12 Oct

Inspirational Poem

My sister Kelly was paralyzed when she was 16. For the next 25 years she was totally dependent on others. Even though she got dealt a bad hand, she remained strong and dignified throughout her life. That is why she’ll always be “The Strongest Girl I Ever Knew”. Kelly, I know you’re dancing in Heaven

The Strongest Girl I Ever Knew

In Loving Memory of Kelly Doe

She never got to dance,
Or go to her own Prom.
She never got the chance,
To forget where she came from.

She never got to kiss,
A man she idolized.
She never felt love’s bliss,
‘Cause she was paralyzed.

She never got to talk,
About love with a smile.
She never got to walk,
Down a Church’s Aisle.

She never got to say,
Those precious words “I Do”.
But she was far and away,
The strongest girl I ever knew.

She couldn’t brush her hair,
Or put make up on her face.
She couldn’t hold you dear,
Or give you a warm embrace.

She couldn’t clasp her hands,
As if in the form of prayer.
She couldn’t understand,
Why she was in a wheelchair.

She never showed her fears,
Or let you hear her cries.
She never showed the tears,
That fell down from her eyes.

She never looked for pity,
Or sympathy from you.
That’s why she’ll always be,
The strongest girl I ever knew.
