Of her youth

Was evident

Only to the ones

Who never knew her when

She shown like the bright dayspring

Filled with magic and hope’s promise

Emanating through and from her soul

Now and forever shining through her eyes

Vibrant reminder of who she was

A beacon of who she truly is

Her youth is never really lost

It is present in her life

In precious, subtle ways

Heard in her laughter

Felt in her hugs

When she serves
