You are a gift, a poem for @RachelMiner1 by Tracy Diane Miller

You are a gift
Your life is a gift
Even as Fate wrote your days
Even as your body does betray
You look beyond your pain
And offer inspiration so all might gain

You are a gift
Your life is a gift
Even as Fate wrote an uncertain future for you
Compassion overflows within your heart
Telling you there is still so much for you to do

You are a gift
Your life is a gift
Even as the world feeds on anger
Even as political ideologies divide
You care for the well being of others
Your concern you do not hide

You are a gift
Your life is a gift
Even as you look at your road so far
Even as you reflect on the characters you portray
The real you
Authentic in a world of make believe
Always shines through

You are a gift
Your life is a gift
Even as you remember the Rachel you used to be
Even as you generously allow others to know you and the real Rachel to see
You never stop caring
You never stop learning
And what you continue to teach
Is that the beauty inherent within humanity
Is still within reach
