Joey Keek Drifts Off Near Death

We  mere mortals have a hard time trying to comprehend
Why a loving God looks the other way when a life too soon nears its end
Joey + Rory is a husband and wife country western duo that God with talent God has blessed
Two time winner of the Top Duo award, their fans were always impressed
Another nomination for another Top Duo award they will not both be present to receive
For Joey’s cancer came back with a vengeance that modern medicine could not relieve
She held her two year old daughter  for the last time a few days ago
Then one last kiss for Rory with final “I love you, but it’s time to drop the curtain on our show.”
No one wants to die with a two year old and loving husband to leave behind
When it comes to acceptance of death a sense of dignity of Joey Keek comes to mind
Her daughter will only know her from her music videos and her songs
While Rory will know near the Father listening to her sing is where she belongs
This is a woman of courage, a woman we all should admire
To accept the inevitable and to with grace from this earth retire
