The Cowgirl Rides Away

We look up at night
Because it’s your light
That shines upon the moon
A beautiful life that ended too soon

So much of us
Is so much of you
You taught us to be strong
Without you here feels so wrong

You have some big shoes to fill
If only time could stand still
When you were close
When you were near
Not having you here
Is what we fear

Just come back to us
Let us know you haven’t left
That your spirit will not leave
Words come so hard in moments like these

Please visit us from time to time
In our hearts and in our minds

We’ll celebrate your life
We’ll remember your laugh
We’ll see you in our memory
Just like a photograph

I wish we didn’t have to feel pain
Losing you makes us go insane
There has to be a reason
We trust in God this season
I’ll get down on my knees
And pray that we find ease

  2. Kristen, what a wonderful tribute to your sister & your family! Monica was & always will be a special part of your life, as well as many others! My thoughts & prayers are with you all!


  3. She was an angel we couldn’t keep to ourselves, as for god opened his arms in love for his daughter. Such a bright beautiful soul, Monica you will always be remembered.
