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
more powerfully,
more beautifully,
more succinctly
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.
