The Lady

I hope the one who inspired this can find strength in it.  I hope others facing the same can find meaning.  - Eric

She was there,
At a garage sale,
Sitting with family,
Speaking with a smile,
Full of life and joy,
Sharing her feelings,
Inspiring a laugh,
Enjoying the warmth,
Of family and sunshine,
And where I met her,
Pure happenstance,
Her terminal cancer,
Pure circumstance,
She would not allow it,
To take away her focus,
From the music of life,
Surrounding us all,
And as I see sunsets,
Each of different color,
I remember the lady,
And the truth within her,
We are here for a day,
And life is a gift,
But love is forever.
