Read Poem: Dear Mema, by Sienna Feruzi

I’m paralyzed,

You’re in the front of my eyes

And you won’t. go. away.,

You were my light,

You were the shadow in my shade,

The breeze on my hottest days,

The pink and gold of a sunrise haze,

You were the ground under my feet,

You were the smile folks loved to greet,

I feel you now when I see injustice,

I feel you when I see true love,

I know you are the voice of my happiness and patience;

You’ll always be my baptismal dove

And the one who encouraged me to stay confident and kind

Who taught me to never be left behind

For I am special, just how I am.

I’ll always have that Avery glam.

I’m paralyzed but I’m motivated

Because of you I’ve become elated

To have this life I have to live,

If only with you, for you I could give

Another walk along the bridge

Or through the park

Or at the store

I’ll always, always want some more.

But I’ll have the time, I’ll get the chance,

Once I meet you again.

I love you.
