I don’t have deep thoughts.

Right now, I’m simply content

here in the moment.

I can face failure.

It’s the thought of not trying

that terrifies me.

Good woman gone.

On the same day that I was celebrating me

and my world,

you were leaving yours.

And we say we shouldn’t be sad,

since it’s likely things are easier for you now.

But I liked having you around.

And maybe I thought with some work and some time,

things could be better for you.

I’ll let go of those selfish thoughts, though, since that seems fair to you.

But I’m keeping your laugh, your humility, your vulnerability.

I’m keeping your honesty, your fierceness, your creativity.

I’m keeping that moment when you told me that what we do means something.

I’m keeping you.

Sometimes, she was sad.

Sometimes, she baked pies and laughed.

I won’t forget her.

Scott got his black belt.

His spirit, drive, and conduct

inspires us all.
