Here today, gone tomorrow
An unexpected departure.
Did you think she would live forever?
What was her name again?
No matter . . she was.
Oblivious to the power she possessed,
Resilient and determined to succeed,
Challenged failures like a mighty warrior,
Armed and exposed to culture,
Fluent to articulate in dilative languages.
Perserverance molded her character.
Instilled values and principles
Seeped out of her pores
Like a sweet pleasant aroma to your nostrils.
She walked in grace,
Stepped on pride,
Brushed against hatred,
Embraced unmerited favors,
Willed and focused on the impossible,
Embellished granted mercy
She was. . . Eulie
