A Beautiful Soul
by Cassidy Passaro
Being able to walk through hell once is lucky.
Being able to find your way back – That’s something most think is immortal.
Then again, it’s not just the journey,
It’s how we bounce back from seeing the horrific things.
Things only sought out in movie scripts and nightmares.
The things that make your heart wither,
Dropping to the floor.
But with you, never a cry or banter.
Despite the battle fought or tears shed.
At the end of the day you are there,
With a kiss on the head
Tucking away everyone to bed
A different kind like no other.
You won’t give in.
You won’t say stop.
Not even a stutter.
It’s courageous people like you I look up to.
Although with all that you do
It’s not sure I can continue to say
You are a human of our kind
But thankfully you are here to stay
Because it’s impossible to put a smile on in adversity
And keep chasing my demons away.
You’re my Angel sent from heaven
Carrying us all together
Each day teaching us a new lesson.
