There is a poem:
Poem of Chance
The poem begins with:
“In the sweetened gallery of our hearts
there is a place we go, “
Charmaine Is the place we go
She is the one that will never end
Her story Illuminates Silence
Her story gave voice to those who had theirs’ ripped and smothered away
In Charmaine’s poem: Obstacles to Overcome she opens the gallery of our hearts with the words:
“When I stopped to listen to another, and another, and another that, it was in OTHER’S sharing where I rose to discover that;
Vulnerability is the GREATEST superhero trait to EVER expose
It breaks all barriers and causes a planet to shift!!!
A planet for sustainable transformational and positive change, possibilities and miracles!!”
So it is that Her story is the one we will always tell
Charmaine is the forever well-spring for the advocate, the person relentless in the pursuit of possible miracles that live eternal in the gallery of our hearts.
With love to Charmaine and her family.
