To A Truly Special Sapphire
There you go again True to from
Always a few steps ahead of us Even as you faced the unthinkable
Age-wise You thought of others first
It wasn’t yet your time to go Those you had helped in the past
But you did Those you were helping then
Leaving us with sweet and sad memories And those you wished to help in the future
As the end neared Precious stones are made to last
You inspired us But first the daughter of a diamond
With your stoic indifference And now you- A truly special sapphire
Carefully noting each labored breath Shining so bright- Go in peace, dear sister
Mindfully observing the rhythms of life and death Nirvana awaits you on the other side.
