I do not know what weight you held
in selection, Rosemarie,
but you or somebody
saw straight through to my core.

I see it now:

my reckless abandon
in pursuit of any passion,
understood or not;

my unwavering faith,
tenaciously holding to,
despite all obstacles;

my unconventionality,
a firm truth to my being,
in all words or actions.

One criterion set me apart
from the pool of many,
and I am still hard-pressed
to figure out how you knew
to associate it with me.
