For Shaveesa, with love

star seed, your comet light too dazzling to snuff out by one deed

why your spirit won’t let me be?

by day your name.. whispers… touches me through the crisp winter breeze

daring forgetfulness to thaw its chill

at night your powerful glow blinds the haunting darkness with hope of your radiant tomorrow.

walk boldly through your valley in the shadow of death

with the Most High forever in the lead; your ancestors cloaked around you

do you see them? hear them?…

you, suspended between here and there

we, who with bated breath wait, wrapped in agony of your today,

hold firm to the promise of your many moons to come

inspiring us to personal greatness

in the shadow of your brilliance.
