From veins to bones
A creation of God
Of beauty and poise
A trait that seems to follow when I call your name
You are of a spectacle
More than an idea
More than a facade
You are a reality that’s loved
Your scars speaks of truth from the past
That a lady so young has become so strong
Your stretch marks sparks hope to other women that being beautiful does not speak standards
It does however speaks of acceptance, of you
Your mouth which sparks conversation and principles
Of topics that I will miss talking with you
But your heart, your heart is something that I love about you
How it speaks of kindness despite pain
How it speaks of happiness despite everyday’s troubles
How it speaks of love, love that’s so deep that even I could not grasp.
You are a beauty
Inside and out
A friend that I will forever cherish
Know that beyond veins and bones, lies a great beyond
A woman of worth
A woman of the world
A woman of God
A woman for herself
By herself and with herself
A woman that future girls would look up to,
A woman that empowers women.
In the core of the earth, if ever you need someone beyond the Pacific
Know that neither the oceans will stop you from calling me because the core of the earth will pull us together like how gravity works
Like how our friendship works
Meshed in the most messed up meeting
Surrounded by uncertainties
But despite the odds
Polished by words of love
Thank you for the friendship
Go soar high! Find the woman that you wanted to become.
Until we cross on the rivers of life, I’ll see you again! But promise me, that by then, you’d still be wearing your best feature; your smile and and your heart.
In dedication to my dearest friend, Ada. I will surely miss you! See you in Hawaii, soon.
