Chocolate for Breakfast (A Tribute to my Aunt Cathy)

It’s time to let go,
Time to set you free
Where you can rest your head
Forever peacefully.

In Heaven I’m sure they’ll serve you
Chocolate for breakfast
Because God knows
You deserve the best.

And I’m sure they’ll play your favourite tunes,
Hang up posters of Gretzsky for you.
Just like on earth where we now stand,
So bear with us while we try to understand.

You were taken from us so caring and young,
My loving Aunt Cathy;
So selfless and dear,
My godmother and friend;
We wish you were still here.

So here I stand today,
In a purple tie,
In your loving memory;
You’re always close to my heart.
And that is where you’ll stay.

As we look to the skies above,
Let us be reminded of her unwavering love;
Cathy was a loving wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, grandmother and friend.
You’re in a better place now, Aunt Cathy.
I believe in that with no end.

But I’m sure they’ll serve you
Chocolate for breakfast
Because God knows you deserve the best.
And as sure as life and sure as death,
I’ll love you with my last breath.
At Rest: March 29th, 2012.
R.I.P. Aunt Cathy
