Katie.
My soul is with you
today, and always.

In the days and years ahead
here will be those who sit
and curse the gloom.

Darkness and curses will follow
anytime we allow them to.

Our task is to face each day with courage.
For to sit and curse the gloom
is worse than sleeping through our joy.

Both are sides of the same
tarnished coin.

We are sandstone and granite
Our chasms filled with many-colored solutions of earth and sky.

We have seen the earth born of stars!
Though so long ago
We remember with our souls
Not our minds.

In that same cache
We store the tablets
Now faded and worn
That still speak of our birth.

The earth moves like an old man grumbling in his soup,
But we are the children of stars!
