..........A Tribute To Nisha (Monique)........
Another friend this forum has lost,
A lovely friend and we count the cost.
Often contributing to those in need,
Monique was a dear friend indeed.
A friend that will be sorely missed,
To write her a tribute I can't resist.
These words are inadequate I know,
The love and respect just doesn't show.
A friend on this forum for quite a while,
And often said things that made us smile.
I shall miss our lovely friend Monique,
Her hidden talents were so unique.
A year ago she wrote me a rhyme,
A fitting poem that was bang on time.
This poem I shall always treasure,
I wonder if she knew it gave me pleasure.
I wonder if I thanked her enough,
I wonder if she realised that I was chuffed.
I wonder if she was ever even aware,
She was never out of thought and prayer.
We send condolences to Astrid and Mark,
Our words seem hollow maybe stark.
But our sadness of this loss runs deep,
Memories of her we shall always keep.
The memories we hold in our heart,
And this is an attempt to try and impart,
Her loving kind and generous posts,
Her wisdom too was beyond reproach.
Her strong reluctance to complain,
Even when she was herself in pain.
We know that her family meant such a lot,
We can't comprehend the sadness you've got.
We know there were times that you hold dear,
We know this will make her seem so near,
We know her pain is now all gone,
We know too that memories live on.
We also know she will be sorely missed,
And the grief you feel cannot be dismissed.
We hope that good memories stay with you,
And you'll live your life as she'd want you too.
