She smiled warmly

Talked sweetly,

Walked gracefully,

Gave wholeheartedly

So no one knew

How each step hurt

Every inch of her.

Until her body shattered

Into a millions shards

And her breath dispersed

Becoming everything

And no one knew,

But everyone felt

Closer to GOD,

When she was set free.

Dedicated to my student Melisa Luna. She cane to my senior yoga class a year ago and told me she had lung cancer. She came each week until she couldn’t. I just learned this morning she passed. #rip to such a beautiful human.
