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
