A Petite Yellow Shirt Waisted Dress


Sue Marier

Neatly fitted to her modest figure
An unsteady gait lead her to the podium
Words poured out of her mouth

All eyes fixed to the front
She expressed her sadness
Not a word was recognizable to the crowd
Visible only by her facial expressions
tears told the story.

Labeled at birth as mentally challenged
The challenge was mine
to feel and comprehend her pain
the lose of a dear friend
one that understood her unique language.
