Those scintillating eyes and
the powerful aura-
she reminded me of no one,
she was completely her own, distinctive self.
Nothing was more beautiful
than the way she carried
as the strongest I had ever known.
She was not always so proud of herself,
but the beauty lies in her story-
the story of blossoming into someone
with more faith than fear!
for the fearlessness,
strength and care
that runs in the veins of this woman.
