POEM FOR PAULA

Written by: Tanya Jenkins

Your essence
Strolled gracefully
The alluring fragrance
Of your spirit
Titillating our noses 
Forceful
Tremendous
Energy
Surged throughout your big boned frame
Leaving a residual
Trail of
LOVE
LAUGHTER
SISTERHOOD
FRIENDSHIP
LIFE
Never knowing
The true sacrifice
Of your tireless
VIRTUE
That you willed
To us
For us
We Love You
Paula...
