She gave me a penny,

One of many.

Coins she begged for on the street,

Now offering them up to me, as if generosity was her second heartbeat.

She told me to make a wish with the first penny.

She said she had plenty.

A wish for world peace,

The unwavering belief that conflict can cease.

She handed me a second penny.

Handing over a significant amount of her money.

My second wish, only for her. A penny in a church fountain.

Wishing society could move this mountain.

Her home was in her heart.

An understanding of depths deeper than superficiality she did impart.
