In Memoriam: Susie Steiner

I awoke today

Reached for the phone and read

That she had died

A pretty face a redhead

A writer too

I sighed

So young at 51

To lose the gift of life

Loss of sight was also there

But her spirit it burned bright

 

She leaves behind a husband

Two children very young

And people who remember her

As vibrant and strong

Her writing I find vivid

Lively journalism

Four novels too she leaves behind

Much praised on television

 

So I add my little token

Of gratitude to her

Her name is Susie Steiner

Perhaps you’ve heard of her

Some live long and some live short

It’s hard to understand

But live it well whichever way

And your memory will stand
