to stay

it happened
your mission called
and you said, "yes"

i am humbled
this steely courage
keeps me honest

your eyes shining
wise, kind
intent, deliberate

always trying
completely earnest
forever and ever

Girl, you are a prolific writer, can't wait until this becomes a famous book of poetry.
