SALAMAT, JULIA (A poem)

this is a poem i wrote as a tribute to Julia campbell.

You are but one candle in the darknesss
olitary, but a light-giver, nontheless.
Those you touched shall spread your light
to those who continue to grope in the dark.
You are not truly gone from us!
You live within us through your works.
Where there is hope, there your light will shine
brighter than the brightest star.
Those you have touched have etched your name
in the recesses of their hearts.
You will never be truly gone nor forgotten.
Where there is love, kindness and generosity
there your name shall be whispered,
and what they will whisper are the words
Salamat, Julia, Salamat.
