Poem for Jackie

(Sister Jacqueline Muhammad)

she was
the best of friends
true, caring, loving;
she gave herself to the world
as a healer
and advisor;
she used her wisdom
to teach and help.
I know now
that I have grown
that she understood
the divine gift of love;
and she never withheld
it, in disappointment
or in anger.
she believed,
she mothered,
she fostered,
she encouraged,
she challenged,
she embraced,
she bore,
she endured,
she triumphed.
Jackie,
the best
of friends;
the truest
of women.
