For Sylvia

She reminds me of passion
and singularity of purpose,
of aloneness
and love,
that there is more
to a day than
getting things done.

She reminds me of intention
and sincerity,
of righteousness
and pertinacity,
that there is more
to a relationship than
saying things out loud.

She reminds me to give and share,
to keep and cherish,
to search and find enough.
