A Poem Written to Honor Barbara Heil

Barbara

by Colleen Kelly

 

Bright, brilliant light

Bubbling brook

For all a happy look

 

Cheerful, effervescent

Never ending energy

Ministries for good to be

 

In a single flash

A fatal crash

Redirects her endless force

 

Know not the hour

Nor the day

The Lord may say

 

Come follow me

O valiant woman

“the woman that feareth the Lord,

 

she shall be praised.

Give her of the fruit if her hands, and let her works

praise her in the gates.”
