A kindred spirit, a poem for Arlene Allen by Tracy Diane Miller

When I wasn’t looking
In you a kindred spirit I found
We share an emotional connection
So grateful you are around

For the kindred spirit
That I found in you really is no mystery
You generously give compassion
Despite a painful history

The first hero in my life
My mother Arlene who I love
She left this world long ago
To reside in Heaven above

You too have a heavenly angel
Scott who will always have your heart
To keep alive his memory
To cherish his musical art

You are my kindred spirit
How grateful that makes me
I value your friendship
A blessing that has clearly come to be
