Week 4: Cora

AccidentalPerfectionistBlog

Wine – red wine – on her teak table,

Kerrygold in her fridge,

White bathmats and Boogie boards

Mani-Pedis and flip flops.

Her passport was worn with takeoffs and landings

She relished everything about the journey

History, geography

Surfing or camping and lounging.

Her wig and bandana travelled with her

They would never hold her back

She traveled but was not lost,

She knew just where she was going

But she’ll never see the northern lights

I went on without her.

Left her at the hospital,

without a phone to call.

We were the lucky ones

she helped us find what was in our heart

Oh Cora, there was always a part

You saved just for us.

She will never know how much I miss her

How her big heart fit into the smallness of mine

She travelled but was not lost,

She knew just where she was going

Oh, she travelled but was never lost,

She knew just where she was going.
