Honoring The Past, Present & Future-Rejoicing In The Lord

At the time of my dear friend Anna Marie's death I wrote a poem to express my feelings about her and our friendship . I have recently discovered that all copies of it have been lost. I am therefore  writing a new poem for same purpose.

                         To my dear friend Anna Marie

Anna Marie I have treasured my friendship with you and will miss it greatly. You enriched my life greatly .I loved you for many reasons. The things we both loved such butterflies, unicorns and poetry. The times we shared together with family and friends. Our talks on the phone. The way you cared  about Tim , Chandale, myself and your other friends.You were definely among my best friends ever and losing you is a great lost for me. The only comfort I have is in knowing that since you were also a sister in Christ we will see each other one day in heaven!! Until then  I send love and friendship to you on the wings of God's angels. Sisters forever Carol Ann Nelson

On Our Anniversary

The following is a poem I wrote for my friend Anna Marie  at the request of her husband for one of their anniversaries previous to her death several years ago I put it in honor of her memory. Carol Ann Nelson    poet and friend to both of them.

                                                              Anna Marie

On this our anniversary I realize what a treasure you are in my life . I cherish you more than I can ever say., your lovliness, your kindnessand sweetness are a treasure beyond my wildest dreams. You supply my life with the fantasies of this world , with your love of unicorns, poetry, butterflies and the like which make the world go around and around like a merry go round , always spinning     but never ending for the two of us. when we fell in love and married I thought my life was complete but then you gave me a beautiful  little daughter and added even more to our  joy in being man and wife. Anna words alone can't describe the joy you bring to me darling. I can only hope and pray that I have given you half of the joy you deserve in life honey. This I vow my darling wife I will spend everyday of the rest of our lives devoted to making your life and our love everything you could ever dream or wish for. Thank-you Anna Marie for being my wife!! Tim

This is in different format than  theorginal I wrote but same words are used.- Carol Ann 

Psalm 23

A psalm of David.
 1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.

 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
       he leads me beside quiet waters,

 3 he restores my soul.
       He guides me in paths of righteousness
       for his name's sake.

 4 Even though I walk
       through the valley of the shadow of death, [a]
       I will fear no evil,
       for you are with me;
       your rod and your staff,
       they comfort me.

 5 You prepare a table before me
       in the presence of my enemies.
       You anoint my head with oil;
       my cup overflows.

 6 Surely goodness and love will follow me
       all the days of my life,
       and I will dwell in the house of the LORD



I Miss You Mom.

You were my sun.

When it was dark..

and as my mom.

You conforted my fears.

Without you in my life it is dark.

and uncontrolable.

More than ever imageable.

I wish you were here.

So much trouble

Trouble with school

Trouble with friends.


Why did you leave me.


Written with love by Chandale Marie Corl



Is the hardest thing.

I can't stand it any longer.

To me. It feels like,

I can't live without you.

I need you so much.

WHY did God have to take you

Take you away from me

I cry. I hurt.

I just can't stand it.

I miss you AnnaMarie.

I just can't understand it

 I can't stand it any longer

Is it worth dying.

I never got to say good bye  to you.

My life is so incomplete,

Without you here.

When I heard you died,

I fell to the floor

and cried.


By Jenn Basinger


You never said I'm leaving.

You never said good bye.

You were gone before I knew it.

And only God knew why.

A million times I need you.

I million times I cried

If love alone,

could have saved you,

You never would have died.

In death I still love you,

In life  I loved you dearly.

In my heart you hold a place,

That no one could ever fill.

It broke my heart to lose you.

But you didn't go alone,

for part of me went with you,

The day God took you home.


Written By Jenn Basinger


I know how much you loved me.

I know how much you cared.

I know everything.

I know it was your time.

I know how much you missed me.

Every time I left.

I know how much you cried,

Especially when we fought.

I Know.

I Love You.

You know I still Do.

Even If your not here.

I remember everything.

As if it were happening.

I fell,

I Cried,

When you Died.


Written By Jenn Basinger.

These poems were written in memory of her father Ray Basinger (who passed away when she was 10) They were adapted in loving memory of AnnaMarie by Jenn Basinger


I sit and stare at these four walls

My mind a blank and empty void

I hear not a noise

Not  a creaking of a chair

Or a doorbell ringing

Not a sound of laughter is heard

A empty room is where I sit

Waiting for what is to come

I do not know what will happen to me

Or where I will go

What shall I do

I fear what I do not know

I hope for a way out of this prison

To be free is what I wish for

This place is dark and sad

Not joyful and happy

This place is gloomy

My gloomy place.

Love is like a pretty flower
In a pretty field of lilies
Love is like a sunset
Over the ocean
Love is like a dove
Souring in the sunny sky
Love is like a stary night
Near a large lake
Love is like a dolphin
Glisting in the water
Love is like a sheep
Just being born
