Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

Dear Mary,
brilliant and capable
confident and accomplished
yet somehow retiring
shrinking back:
hesitance
in a world of motion
 
your shyness
and uncertainty
was alluring
your intelligence
inspiring
 
providing the perfect,
unpretentious
platform
for your love
 
there was no guile in it
no calculation
or conceit
 
just a simple wish
to share and show
to support and believe
to hold a withered hand
to a young face
and to smile
