My Muse honors you, a poem for @DonnaY1legwondr by Tracy Diane Miller

I have come to realize
That insomnia shall plague my night
Yet my Muse is often generous
Appearing from shadows so that I may write

My Muse is rarely quiet
With curious eyes she sees
My Muse honors you
For the inspiration you have come to be

A life colored by pain
Sorrow fell upon you
Sometimes a destiny shaped by tragedy
Causes a hero like you to shine through

A voice of quiet determination
Your life story you bravely told
In the shadows my Muse wanted to honor you
So soon a poem did unfold
