In loving memory of a very good friend of my mom.

Had come to live
Inside the house
That was her heart
As family ties
Broke off and then
Dissolved into
A shaken dust

I remember the last time
I saw her smiling face
I was just a child
But I remember curly hair
And foreign words
So drenched in love
So loud and full
Of Passion's heat
I remember her two boys
Playing in my family's yard

And though she felt
As though her life
Had fallen off of Fate's top shelf
And shattered into
Something dark
Jesus knows
That even though
Her heart has stopped
And she is gone
Her soul still lives
And shines like sunlight
In a place
Where people smile
And loneliness
Is not allowed.
