You were...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Dedicated to one of the finest of mentors, someone very dear to my heart, who recently passed away...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You were...

the warmth in my
secret garden

shelter from harsh
winds intruding

delicate as
filigree fronds

velveteen heart
gently perfumed

You were...

softly-spoken
steady gracious

comforting soul
insightful wise

....and now
you're
gone....
