In Memory of Vicky – dmchale

I am finding it difficult to see what I am typing.  My dear friend Dennis McHale posted this beautiful poem as ‘n tribute to Vic.  I am touched that this talented man would take the time to do this.  Dennis has been such a great friend.

Today has been such a mixed day.  I have been filled with the deepest sadness and sorrow and yet I have felt at peace that Vic’s suffering is over.  I miss her terribly.

I am feeling flu-ish and fell asleep on the sofa.  Jon-Daniel covered me with a blanket, and I woke when he gently kissed me on the forehead.  The way his mommy used too…

I want my child back!  It is too hard trying to live without her.

Dennis thank-you for your beautiful words.  Thank you for your love and support over the past year.  I am too teary to write so I shall post this beautiful poem for the world to read and enjoy.

I love you my Angel Child.  You have touched people all over the world.

In Memory of Vicky

by dmchale



This poem is dedicated to my dear friend “tersiaburger”
In memory of her beloved daughter, Vicky.


You and I
are touched by one star.

Wherever you are
we stand together in one light
which no depth or height or distance
can ever dim.

Wherever you are
your light shines;
past time and space
past flesh to thought,
I feel your power.

Wherever you go
the day will dawn
and the star will appear;
for you are a child of this light
and it fosters your heavenly dreams.

In this light, I have found ways
to heal, to bind up,
to tear down the feeble structures
of fear of your absence has
carelessly constructed within me.

You and I
are touched by one star.

In its glowing embrace
we find our true selves;
we find our peace.

Today I may stand alone,

missing you with all my heart
be I stand strong.
Through the corridors of our courage
you have helped me to
discover those eternal lines
of love within myself;
my birthright discovered because

Vicky and I are
touched by one star.

I am a sixty plenty wife, mother, sister, grandmother and friend. I started blogging as a coping mechanism during my beautiful daughter's final journey. Vic was desperately ill for 10 years after a botched back operation. Vic's Journey ended on 18 January 2013 at 10:35. She was the most courageous person in the world and has inspired thousands of people all over the world. Vic's two boys are monuments of her existence. She was an amazing mother, daughter, sister and friend. I will miss you today, tomorrow and forever my Angle Child.
