Enduring Purpose

( – for Belinda )


We have our heart and soul

Tested at every walk of life

For some we might bestow

Always a sense of vocal strife


Though that seems the easy road

There are many who choose to endure

We are magnificent to behold

When our humanity can be clear


I look upon you in your eyes

I see some pain so welled inside

Yet buried is that hurt; so wise

To give yourself to others wide


I only sense genuine delight

When by certain quiet chance

Your ills might be less a fight

While inner peace is your elegance


Strive on and continue, while we our duty

Your eternal strength, we see only beauty.
