Nine good years bookended by tragedy…
A brown-eyed face of hope
suddenly taken away
leaving a hole like Ground Zero in our soul.
Speak not of political ideologies
nor proud partisan remedies
while our tears still be wet,
rather remember her legacy now.
Yes, now and till the winds of time run out of breath!
Henceforth, let us not lash out in anger
but rather reach out in kindness.
