Departure

Her coming was just another.
Work we did together.
Simple and willing were her ways.
Bound by duty were her days.
Integrity and trust, the hallmarks she
cherished so dear,
Without a doubt her legacy is clear.
A coming of just another soon became
a jewel rare.
Privileged are those who work around her
I swear.
Once filled with bliss,
She will sadly be missed.
Now her departure is not another.
But we trust it is for the better.
Happy had been us, as she led this trust.
But god knows all,
And now is her call.
Great friend of ours,
We beg and pray this hour,
In God's grace,
To keep you embraced.
