Farewell again... 'til next year - for them

MADISON JOAN FRIEL
August 10, 2002 - August 26, 2002

To give an answer 
to my own unending questions, 
for peace of a piece of daily living, 
to walk in this world most of the time,
and the alternate universe when forced.

     You are everything I could ever idealize
          in my 13 year old daughter
               And nothing I will ever get to nurture.

So, Madison Joan, 
farewell again.
I give your name to 
as many lips today as I can

'til next year - 
for them - 
'til tonight yet sooner for me.

All my love,
Mommy
