Today
needed you
to carry me.
You gave me strength to
move on.

Today
an honor
to have met you.
Your three words, gave me my
courage.

Today
your wisdom
brightly did shine.
Passed on knowledge, I was
seeking.

Your strength, honor and wisdom,
three qualities we defined.

Contributor’s note: I once again asked my Twitter followers for poetic inspiration by choosing three words for a poem. For the first three stanzas, I chose a Cinqku structure, which blends both a cinquain and a haiku, in a syllable format of 2-3-4-6-2, respectively per line.
