It's been a decade since I've last seen you.
It's been a decade since we've said our goodbyes.
We knew back than it would be our last goodbye.
We knew back than it would be our last hug.
You were always fierce.
You were always brave.
I thank the gods.
I also thank you.
You who helped raise me.
You who always loved me.
It's been over five years since you left us.
Today you would have turned ninety four.
You might be gone,
Gone, yet not forgotten.
