Sheila, You Must...

Tell your tale, preserve it somehow

Give your words to those you love

Folks who’ll treasure them forevermore.

 

In your life, tragedy and triumph have warred

Over all, Sheila, you have soared

You stand victorious, tall and strong

If fate once more sends something wrong

Remember what you’ve overcome and will again

Sheila, over woe you will always win

Your loving family and friends

To whom you gave and give so freely

Now shelter you in mind and spirit, gladly.
