Tribute to A Friend

An amazing woman whose stride is sure
Across the sands of time,
Who crumbles mountains with her prayers
With faith that quietly shines.

Mary, my friend, you share the name
Of the Mother of God on Earth
You are the kind of woman God would
Choose for such a birth.

You never waiver in your stride
Across the plains of chance,
Or sink beneath the roiling waves
Of fretful circumstance.

Oh, woman born of Godís good grace,
A ruby pure and rare,
I salute you now with poetry
And commend you to His care.

This is an awesome poem, well written and flowing, a sweet tribute. I especially love the third verse..."You never waiver in your stride Across the plains of chance, Or sink beneath the roiling waves Of fretful circumstance." Great job!
