She

She-

is adorned with the words of sweet melodies,

The scent of cooking oil and burning tortillas

A memory of a captive listener

The identity of a dedicated housewife

A heart kept safely by her husband

With light tucked away in her smile

Allowed humor into a combustion of conversation

With light skin and Mexican heritage

Compiled of Spanish, English and Idioms

with silver hair, exposing wisdom

Tangled notes and rehearsed harmonies

With banjos, piano keys, and strange melodies,


a song we could never forget
