Dear Departed

Dear departed soul
Everyone's heart you stole
With all those loving traits
Can't find your replicate
Penning down your quality
Trying to describe your personality
Dear Departed soul
You were as whole...
Spirit over Ego
Attention over Show
Tenderness over Toughness
Purity over Hollowness
Charm over Beauty
Love over duty
Sociability over Privacy
Sympathy over jealousy
Receptiveness over Coldness
Warmth over Calmness
Open arms over Rejection
Answer over Question
Praise over Disapproval
Support over Withdrawal
And above all, you were...
Others over Self!!!
