We all share with her our gifts of life
the risings and fallings which mark our days..
But hers is one of special courage
which shines in her diminishing strength..
She rises and comes with her
penetrating eyes of blue
engaging each in soft conversations
informing of her vulnerabilities today..
Listening.. we pause and allow our own..
May we all know of a presence we share
a presence of stillness within
which assures each of
permanence and fullness..
