There was a woman named Dorothy,
who had a humble beginning
was a child who always strived,
dreamed a dream
which was to be free and exist in a loving world,
long away from the concrete jungle and demanding streets.
She aspired to reach new heights,
yet held reality in check
Success came but it was always short,
People came and went
some good and some bad,
but each serving as a lesson
a lesson in what,
and who was the teacher?
Yet she remained firm and true!
Heaven blessed her with a daughter,
and Dorothy became a Mother
and nobody could come in between,
However Dorothy’s time came
and it was far too short,
only 42 years old and with many dreams yet to fulfill.
Her legacy and beloved soul will always remain,
of a kind and caring woman with matching heart and grace.
