These poems were written with love by close friends of Blair and the Beinhaker family.
A Hero is a girl who brings happiness to all people.
One whose intent is to make this world more fair, more free, more kind.
Who shines light upon others’ frowns
With just the thought of her genuine laugh and beautiful wings which
She gracefully used to fly.
A Butterfly indeed, with the most exceptional colors, unbelievable
Strength, and the hope to believe in herself and others.
The want to belong to our world forever,
To love and engage life,
To give back time and time again,
Wishing only good upon our souls.
This Hero believes that she will flutter on forever as a beautiful butterfly,
…And indeed she will.
Soaring higher than we’ve ever seen anyone soar.
Flying further than we’ve ever seen anyone fly.
Continuing to touch the lives of hundreds of people that she has done so naturally up to this day.
A Hero, a Friend, a Dreamer, who we think the world of.
Who has set me free to be me, and you to be you.
And even though we all wish she could have stayed the same forever,
we feel so incredibly lucky that she fluttered on by each and every one of us.
And touched us with her beautiful wings.
For she has become a butterfly.
And like a butterfly has given us, In time, the hope to believe that we too
Can one day spread our wings and learn to fly.
Leaving behind the laughs, the tears, and a part of her wings that we will soon use to touch the sky.
Thank you Blairy for giving us the most incredible strength for today, tomorrow, and everyday in between. WE LOVE YOU.
In a world full of dreams, there would be no rough times,
No diseases, no murderers, not even slight crimes.
In a world full of dreams, there would be smiles and joy,
Every person to a home, every child to a toy.
But unfortunately life sometimes takes a turn for change,
Even though the pictures, memories, and videos still remain.
Throughout someone’s life, many hardships will be faced,
The comfort of their presence can still be traced.
Bumps in the road, you still need to be strong,
Even if the recovery takes quite long.
Blairie was more special than any daughter, friend, or role model I’ve met,
Her genuine personality and positive attitude, a new view on life, she did set.
Throughout this past year and a half she fought every day,
Ang, you made her someone special, I must say.
She gave you a strength that no one knew you could possess,
Although among the family there was quite some stress.
It’s people like Blair that make life worth every piece of the cake,
A good life and good memories with her she did take.
I want you to know your friends are here,
To light up the room, even if it’s with just a little cheer.
But remember a dreamland doesn’t really exist,
Throughout life there always has to be that one little twist.
I hope laughter can be your medicine and time will cure your pain,
Just know you are stronger for have going through the strain.
I’ll lend you my hand and shoulders to comfort you for the rest of time,
Please always remember, you’re a dear friend of mine.
Poem for Blair
Your blonde hair, your brown eyes
Your light skin, your cute smile
Your great laughter and your sad cries
Your lit up face of beauty that lasts awhile
I remember all these things about you
I still see your features everyday
I hear your wonderful voice too
I see you in my pictures and head, in my mind you lay.
Your inspiration, your strength and love
Your kindness, warmth and security too
You are a true angel sent from above
I miss spending every moment with you
You have the ability to overcome your fear
Your hope, your dreams and prayers will take you to the right place
Your pain and suffering, my open ears hear
I only pray that one day I see that beautiful smile on your face
You are loved and cared for by everyone around
No one will leave your side
I wish you would let me hear your voice and sound
This is only a roller coaster and you are only taking the ride
Your life’s journey still awaits you
I know it, I can feel it in my heart
Stay strong and stay positive too
Because Blair you are surrounded by love and no one will let you part
