Daily Wisdom Words, DWW Music Prompt




Originally sang by Van Morrison
Jennifer Gypsy Keim
9/30/1967 – 6/27/2020
Mother, singer, songwriter, daughter, wife, sister, friend. My sister was blessed with it all. She could sing, parent, and work as a paralegal, baking a cake with her kids all in one day.  (Oh, she could even manage to write and sing on weekends too!!). She never ceased to amaze me.  She marred during the past few years of her life, the love of her life.
Getting back to her beginning her music career. She changed her name from Jennifer to Gypsy when she was 21 years old and moved to Los Angeles, California to pursue a career in music. She was the mother of three amazingly beautiful girls. She tragically lost her first girl Hillary Rose Brower three days shy of her third birthday. Hillary passed away from SIDS. ( Sudden Infant Death Syndrome).
Jenny was what I always called her. I went to visit her in L.A. a few times but never saw her, enough. Please learn this lesson from me. Treat your loved ones with kindness, care and tell them how much you love them as often as you can. Sadly, we all have an expiration date. We never know when that might be for anyone including ourselves. As Jenny would say, “love yourself, Sammy”.
Samantha LeBoeuf Sammy-Jo to my sister. I will love and miss her every second of every day. I was fortunate to be at her bedside when she passed at just 52 years old from Cancer. Treasure your loved ones always. She truly was someone exceptional and amazing. She also was stunningly beautiful. Her heart and soul alive at all times until she was struck with this horrid disease.
One huge blessing finally happened for her towards the end of her life. She reconnected with an old friend who turned out to be someone far more special She feel madly in love and Gregory Keim who became the love of her life. They developed most of their relationship FaceTiming and Gregory, not wishing to waste any more of his or her time asked her to marry him. they married soon after. There was a magic between the two of them and they made the most of the short time they had creating many wonderful memories.   When she was diagnosed with head and neck cancer, he was then first to stand beside her. He took care of her, sometimes sleeping on the floor of a hospital room just to be near her. He was there when she passed.  He was there through all of it. Her feeding tube, her pain, and the loss of her voice as part of her treatment b when the doctor had no choice but to remove part of her tongue. He was there until the end. He will always be a part of our family. He felt she was worth it and she truly was.
God bless you all and those you love.

From sorrow and felicity
Tears for a beautiful soul are born
But don’t let your tears cry, she said
Don’t let your tears fall
Let them rise and soar
Let them take flight with luminous wings
And set them free amongst the stars
Gypsy, infinite love and light
Forever aglow

An angels breath
Feathery on my cheek
Gently guiding me
In2 mystic sleep
Taking my hand
leading me home
2 visit with her
Amongst clouds we roam
Her ethereal beauty
Leaves me in awe
But her absence
Is still so raw
I want her 2 stay
With me 4ever
We share a bond
Death cannot sever

thank you all so very much for your kindness and soft, soothing words…You actually have very much who my sister was..There was so much diversity to her…..I know when someone passes away, we tend to idealize them and we seem to describe them as perfect. Jenny, (gypsy) wasn’t perfect but just about there. Perhaps that is why she needed to go to God. Maybe she was just such a good person, the Lord didn’t want to see her suffer a minute longer…..I miss her so much…Thank you all again. Monday, You have done an amazing job with this. I can’t… Read more »

Gypsy aka my Aunt Jenny was an inspiration to all, especially single mothers. I dont kmow she kept up. She managed to be a mother and father to her beautiful daughters. The love she had between her girls was such a beautiful thing to witness. I had the privilege to live with Aunt Jenny for a few months as I struggled with my addiction. She never gave up on me and actually found me help. Ill never forget how loving and kind she was. Everyone loved her. She had a soft deep soul and such a talent with music. Ill… Read more »

Borne before the stars
her light found our dark
dancing in those eyes
capturing all of ours.

When she sailed away
we lost part of our soul
rocking with her gypsy
she sojourns fore us.

Stars still smile for her
children growing love
making our universe
sail into her mysteries.

My heart open to words falling
within the song
for her music
a personal lyric
she is the place
of honor and distinction
a song from the heart
an elevated status
a true…heavenly voice
experience of feelings
her gift
for those
“mystic bound”

I want to remember you
in mystic reveries of a
predawn dream
upon cheerful faces
n countless places..

Where whispered secrets
of your gypsy soul
lies in love struck moments
to savour the timbre
of given chances.

You have
The soul of
A Gypsy
Always doing
Things that
Are mystic
You left us
Too soon
My beautiful
But I believe
Soul you
Are in heaven
Showing everyone
Your beautiful
Bright inner light
We may be sad
But now they
Are the blessed ones

She has a beautiful voice to match her heart, bff. I felt the magic in her, and the bond you share.
She will always love you, that part of her will continue to shine.

…eternal. xx
