"life isn't a matter of milestones, but of moments"

"experience is the name everyone gives to their mistakes."

"be as you wish to seem."

"it's better to be hated for what you are, than to be loved for what you are not."

More than a person lost,
more than a gravestone bought,
I can't imagine all that you are.
A mother, a teacher, a maid for your mister,
a writer, a worker you may,
find a place in our hearts while God tore us apart to a place we'll go someday.
A walker, a driver, a medicine prescriber when your daughter came down with the flu.
A saint, a sinner, a first place winner in the game of life god dealt to you.
An expert, an enemy, a first class friendemy because you were the best you could be.
A discoverer, a scientist, a tooth fairy dentist so that your children would be pleased.
Now looking back we notice your roles we overlooked everyday.
And here we are with a tree and wish we'll remember forever and a day.

For Dr. Somers; a board of education member from my school that passed away in January. Our school planted a tree for her and I read this poem at the dedication ceremony.
