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

Dear Mary,
brilliant and capable
confident and accomplished
yet somehow retiring
shrinking back:
in a world of motion
your shyness
and uncertainty
was alluring
your intelligence
providing the perfect,
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
