You are such a lover

of the world

they told her…

Such a giver and


of those around you…

You have such a gift

for making life


surrounding others

with a love

they aren’t accustomed

to feeling…

You are a mother

to the world

around you…

And while knowing

these things filled her

with the brightest joy…

She burned  and

yearned from the darkest

heart of herself

for the one

who saw past

everything she did

and all those she healed

to demand from her

the woman

she gave to no one…

The one who would not

merely let her

hold him…

The one who refused

anything less

than watching her


for him alone.
