I am in your service.
I have more gratitude than I can know in this fragile body--
-- you delivered me to you Sister, stretched and bowed.
I owe you all of my skin.
I am in such power now.
For eyes that know these roads,
and for the path you led me on,
for that enduring moment
and a stare into the face
Of one with like blood.
I will thank you in the face of all that I meet.
