Within This Here ~

A woman

Whose smile I wear

Rests after the climb

Though I never knew

Her voice or her embrace

I carry her

On my heart

In my DNA

I see her face shining

Through my children

I fight her lost battle

And wish

Upon a family

She left too soon

And within

These walls

Rests the fire

That gave me triumph

Where that love

Could not win

All on its own

They twined together

In my blood


Sister, Mother, Matriarch


They found the impossible

Together, invincible ~ Caroline A. Slee
