Your Real Life Has Just Begun

Warriors are the ones who stand up and fight
They have always been the ones to sacrifice for whats right
Who look adversity in the eye
And say the courageous word "goodbye"

Most people hear the word warrior and think of Attila the Hun
When I hear the word warrior I think of Lauren Johnson
She never gave up and she never gave in
She would only show love which is the greatest gift ever given

Her smile was what made the sun shine so bright
Her presence is what made the dark turn into light
Her laughter would only fill you up with glee
Her character was stronger than the trunk of a tree

I remember when we used to play house together
You were always the mother and I was always the father
We would always put Ashleigh, Alexis, and Addie in timeout
You have always proven to us that fun and laughter is what you were always about.

I never understood why you would never complain
About how you would suffer and have to fight through the pain
When I used to ask you you would only smile and say
"I have no control of it, so I must do all that I can do every single day"

She would always put people before herself
She didn't care about having material things or wealth
So each of us can learn from this amazing lady
To show love and servitude no less than daily

The Lauren I knew would want us to celebrate
Because she is headed to the heavenly, pearly gate
Where she will no longer have to fight anymore pain
Where she will be able to run and jump with no more strain

Lauren fought the good fight and in the end she won
Her life on earth has ended, but her true life has just begun
She is no longer in chains, she has been set free
So let us always remember Lauren Johnson's incredible legacy
