Your legacy is in your retreat

Your hope is in your burning hands

You bring warmth to the shivering

You cradle the wounded with kindness


Yet there is steel in your sound

There are flames in your appointed feet

You dance and sparks hit the eyes

Of the angered and disappointed


There is only light in you now

A supernova with clouds of gas and dust

A spirit in the making a blanket of stars

Your glow dims, and many shine for you


May we find your creative fire

Echoing in the vastness of life

An ember of graciousness and courage

A remnant of blazing starlight sun
