This came to me as I was reading and reviewing Nordette Adams' "Coretta Scott King: Quiet Strength." I wish I had had the words to say...but you covered that for me. For that, I thank you.
I really wanted to write a tribute
that would be remembered
as great poetry,
but didn't have the words to say ...
you said all that needed to be said
than I ever could have.
You honored the memory
of the one we lost with
grace and dignity;
they will linger in the heart,
because of what you said;
they will never be forgotten,
thanks to you -
you have touched me today
with the words I wish I'd said.
(c) 2006, Karla Dorman.
