Cucumber Louise


" Cucumber Louise"

1983 ---- 1998

You were the one thing in this world

Could always make me smile.

Could make me laugh

When nothing else could.

Your funny little face,

Your crooked grin,

That cocky butt-kickin strut.

Your joy of life was infectious.

You loved just being alive.

Everything was new and exciting to you.

You were always happy and sweet.

You never complained through any of it.

You just took life as it came.

Still loving it all.

Just being alive.

Enjoying every minute.

If there's one thing

I can learn from you,

I hope it will be this,

To find the simple joy in life

and just take it as it comes.
