Held Together – A Poem

* For Karine

Word can’t express

what you have done for me.

Even when we are far apart,

you have been this this pillar

of strength for me,

a shining light that can through

the shadows that life brings.

Even when time passes between us,

when we meet again

it is like yesterday has yet to happen

and all we have to look forward to

is tomorrow and the future that waits.

Knowing you are there for me

as a friend and sister

has held me together

when I wanted to fall apart.

You shine so brightly

and I am so thankful for the light

that you give to my life.

On this day when we celebrate you,

I hope you know

what you bring to the world

and those around you.
