Farewell, Wilma

With heavy heart

Such a tragic loss

Life at what cost

Whether it’s a sun’s glare

One should always be cautious and aware

A pedestrian or driver

Weather could have been a factor



Go slow not to drive fast to exceed

There is no excuse

Wilma at just 72 enjoying walk with her dog


Driver going to appointment, work, school

Never another chance, not 3 strikes you’re out

Struck fatal once

Conscience forever haunts

We all miss you

The ocean absorbs our tears

Disappears with the waves…
