I can’t call you by name, but I feel that I know you. I don’t know a lot of details about you, but I have watched as you morphed from insignificance among the shadows into a silent authority to respect.
I can’t call you by name, but I feel I have learned something significant about you. Quietly you notice the needs and the weaknesses of others and with kindness and grace you endeavor to come along side them.
I can’t call you by name, but I feel I have seen your heart. Unseen you searched out the depth and the strength of others and then you brought them into the spotlight. Respectfully you empowered them; respectfully you withdrew to let them shine.
I can’t call you by name, but I feel I have recognized you. In another time and place, you would have walked by me unnoticed but now that I have watched, I have learned and I have seen, I will never forget you.
