Memorialize Someone



 I’m always trying to lose some weight

Not happy how I am

I’m sure some of you can relate

Bought into the “something’s wrong here” scam

The other day I grabbed an orange

Wishing it were chocolate cake instead

And then I stopped and thought of her

Lying in that hospital bed

Lying there, fighting her fight

Wanting one sweet simple thing

A piece of fruit to bite and swallow

And all the joy that would bring

I slowly peeled that bright orange ball

Savoring that first citrus scent

I felt the juice run down my hands

Didn’t care which way it went

I took a bite and really tasted

How good an orange can be

I ate it for her because she couldn’t

I ate it for Lexie
