"Janet Gail Henry is a Friend We Remember," written by Bob Rich, by request of Janet's sister Sandra Gagnon, 10/8/10

She's a soul with a generous presence, that each of her loved ones enjoys
Her contentment comes from helping others, and she does so with gladness and poise.

 

She visits the docks at Port Haney, like the times she once had as a girl
Her fisherman dad loved the ocean, a great love she received like a pearl
When Janet is close to the water, she is peaceful beside the calm sea
But when she has hopes, dreams, and missions, her existence fills with energy.

 

She's happy with Sandra, her sister, which is true because they are best friends
She cherishes her daughter Debra, and their bond to this day never ends
So, Debra has taken some classes, to research why some disappear
She brightly reflects Janet's kindness -- it's almost as if Janet were here.

 

When Debra was just a young child, Janet took her to aunt Sandra's farm
Where animals roamed and played freely, underneath the sun's sky-warming charm
And Janet made wondrous things happen, her life was a great and true story
She would always aim high for the moon, to find her own bright lunar glory.

 

She liked to go to The King's Kitchen, for exceptional Chinese cuisine
With passion and skill as a dancer, she was a choreography queen
She loved Stanley Park for its beauty, where the swans are like floating white kites
Where dolphins swim in an exhibit, near cedar tress of towering heights.

 

We know she'd be proud of our efforts, to search tll at last we can find her
Yet she'd want us to go on with life -- her soul could not be any kinder.

Thanks, Maureen. Yes, exactly, I'm hoping that my poems for missing people can make their lives, memories, & personalities come to life.
