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

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
a wonder to see
giving her all

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

she is holding on
moving heaven
and earth
His echo
