Mary (Maureen) Cox Starkey Tigrett
She seemed to be the wild one
but all she wanted was to have fun.
She was just a young girl
with an unlimited time for the World
She was a down-to-earth, shy
who would never tell a lie.
She would keep a secret till her death
even after her last breath.
She was educated
who didn't need to be separated
because she knew that her Prince will come
living in her own choice in her Kingdom.
Knowing full well of what she was getting into
facing the challenge of the zoo.
Caring about her man
being the wife who understands.
Raising her children with a gold heart
she didn't want them to feel torn apart.
She found a path to survive
with pressures to stay alive.
Until her life turned to tragic
she disappeared like magic.
She had the best with her love
which she mostly thought of.
She will be missed, but fondly remembered
to those who still love her.
