The Lily Of the Valley

There, among the Lilies-of-the-Valley

that Gram and Grandpa planted

sits the tombstone of a girl

who took her life for granted.

Suzanne was only seventeen

when she crashed that old two-seater,

injuring both of her best friends,

and sparing Cousin Peter.

But, Gram and Grandpa loved their girl,

and her tiny baby boy

who was born to her that very day

has brought them so much joy.
