My name is Grace
By Tamyara Brown
I walk past her and instantly greet her.
I put a few dollars in her cup hoping it would meet her needs.
Everyday she'd compliment me.
Everyday she'd give me a bible quote and whisper,
"Make today remarkable you're capable."
I drop coins in her cup on the days I didn't have enough.
She smile and say,
"I won't always be this way. Just a pit stop in my journey. Make today remarkable you're capable."
Some days when I was on my lunch break I'd bought lunch for us and she would teach something new about life.
She would never tell me her name no matter how many times I asked.
Her response," I am nameless. I like purple. God bless me with grace and mercy to never be hungry. To have a friend who likes me despite my circumstances.Call me friend."
For several days I no longer saw her in her usual spot. One day on my way to work a gentleman handed me envelope.
"She passed away two days ago and told me to hand over this note."
My name is Grace. Thank you for being my friend.Today and everyday day be remarkable you're capable of doing whatever god set your heart to do.
