Gabriel’s Conceit


She makes a difference in so many lives
With great intelligence and empathy,
A sense of humor and a heart that gives
So much more than it takes. But she can be

Even more. Poet, partner, shoulder, muse,
An inspiration for so many deeds
Of kindness, strength and wisdom. She will use
Skills gained o’er paths of struggle, unmet needs

That, when ignored, did heartache daily bring.
A sense of hopelessness forged in the heat
Of misplaced angers that a boor would sling
Unprompted did unleash the calm conceit

Of better times. And now radiates pride
That bathes the fortunate those by her side.
