Matriarch.

I wish to share with the world your beauty
Elegance and poise,
Powerful and yet serene.
Your charm, finesse—
Emerald green.
Matriarch—
No words amount to your grandeur,
Simply splendid.
From the way you carried yourself
I’ve learned eminently.
When you parted
An exquisite rainbow appeared.
I can still feel you near—
Guiding me through the years.
I became a woman in your image
And till this day and forever more
You shall be revered—
For you taught me life
Taught me wrong from right—
Taught me love.

Dedicated to my guardian angel—
Odete Machado Stafin
