To Kasaria September 17, 1992 
That morning when you left my body
the road was strewn with mist.
The accident happened so quickly
yet with each breath I thought of you.
My womb desperately tried
to keep you safe within.
Though my hands cradled you…
…my body could not hold on to you.
I wished to leave then also,
but the light of your tiny spirit
showed me you could go on.
The strength of your special illumination
now lights the steps of my own journey.
I again carry you forever safe within,
our souls connected by the bonds of my heart.
