Sonnet for Three Women

Three women's deaths have diminished me, 
because I could not get past my ego.
For the rest of my days I will always be
totally in their debt. How do you go
about repaying a departed lady? Perhaps, 
begin replacing your thoughtless deeds, 
each one, until you've forgotten your lapse. 
To compensate, if one truly heeds
all those women in your life that continue
with patience to overlook your own 
failings and your part played in the venue
of cultural misogyny is to loan
them all the support, love. encouragement
that you can. That is truly just and meant.
