The Treasure

I watched you as you lifted the empty box,
translucent, and much too light.
You wrapped it up and handed it over to strangers. 
You held it tenderly, but with strength and dignity.
I am certain, though, that you wetted it with your tears
as you watched your treasure being poured out.

Heartbreakingly beautiful. Praying for you and Trish and Kris's sweet family. I only know her through you but I am certain heaven received a treasure today
