Upon the Passing of a Matriarch

Swift and vibrant like the surprise of wind
Removing doubt and proceeding in
So wise, so sure, so confident, at ease
In your defining way, life’s fears relieved
Embracing life in every season
With care and regard for passion and reason
Unafraid, outspoken, ever so sure
Instinctively leading with a love so pure
Rendering to loved ones the best of you
In love, in spirit, and service too
No greater love, no greater heart
Than that of yours, a true matriarch
How grateful that in such cherished time
Life joined our hearts, this hope to find
This hope that binds and leads us on
This hope now come to lead thee home
