FOR MEL: This is a poem for my friend Melanie, who we lost Tuesday, May 26th, 2009. She is/was/will be amazing.

Her smile stretches like a horizon, a bright eternal.

She forms stars with every word, a cradle of creation.
And a laugh that soothes one’s essence, teaching it to breathe.

Her figure curves those around her, a whirlpool of life;
a welcoming capture where we drown in her sweetness.

As she enters a room, time freezes, crystallized by her motions,
and that smile again, where we bow with respect.

She is an unwritten, unspoken dream; a kiss that tingles deep within.

She is strong, yet delicate. Perfect yet humble in that perfection.

Her heart beats in dance; her soul, music that seeds happiness in others.

She is peace. She is love. She is Melanie.

We love you.

We miss you.

I miss you…

Goodbye for now my friend. I will always bow to you.
