I see your eyes; your hair; your smile,
My heart compresses time.
Your wry unbidden love of life,
Invokes response from mine.

I see the pain; the joy; the laughs,
With which you greet each day.
Compassion brought to bear by you,
For each who comes your way.

Bright treasure; gift; a butterfly,
To burst upon this earth.
Providing love's enlightenment,
For those who heed your words.

So spin; so weave; this bright cocoon,
This skein that gathers time.
That we your friends may share with you,
Your wisdom and your smile.
