faye


she is holding on
President Hinckley's shovel
used to move earth
temples

see her smile
so much more than
another pretty face

she is holding on
because he held there too
touching where he grasped
an even more sacred handle
because she held there too

she is holding on
such determination
optimism 
a wonder to see
honest
real
giving her all

she is holding on
all her might, mind, strength
morning
noon
and night

she is holding on
moving heaven
and earth
His echo
