Two years have passed
Since you drifted from this place.
Words were sparse around you
As you captured our moments in photos.
You treated your sickness as a gift
Showed me strength and patience.
Taught me its okay to simply observe
To slow down and listen.
And that people can transform
To better love those who surround us.
You realized the importance of family
And brought us closer.
I sense your pride for me in my walks alone
When I’m swallowed by the beauty surrounding
And stay savoring the silence.
