With quiet resolution and bravery;
refusing some master of slavery.
Living life with grace she carries gifts untold;
to those in her circle she does love unfold.
A force so strong in her resolution fight;
in beauty and with words, a Patch of light.
This lady with constitution brave and bold;
has more value than a treasure chest of gold.
Inspiring those she comes to know in life;
letting humor and the pen relinquish strife.
Happy are we who've met her by simply chance;
and grateful that our lives she does so inhance.
