The anniversary of your death
Your crossing over
 
I see you everywhere
 
White butterflies
following me
 
Lady bugs
landing on my finger
 
Your recipes
Wafting through my hallways
 
Your perfume
Worn on other women
 
Every few years that scent
Brings me to my knees
In unexpected places
 
You were the glue
that kept the family together
 
Larger than life
We talk about you like a legend
 
People don’t see me
but you did
 
You knew
Your namesake
 
You left me too soon
Before you could help me understand
who to become
 
But I think I figured it out
It took a little longer
 
You are courage
Crossing a sea
In pursuit of a new life
 
I don’t hope, I know
I make you proud
 
Your journey was worth it
