Senator Paul Wellstone Poem by Cherie Griffith


The soul of the Senate
May not sit in his seat
Or stand for the truth
Regardless of consequence,
However, his spirit lives
In my heart and the
Hearts of those
Who would champion justice.
Though I may not have
The strength to be a public servant
I have the same intent as he did,
To be relentless in the
Pursuit of fairness to all.
Though the body and personality may die
I believe the soul is eternal
And as I mourn his passing
(Especially now when we really need one brave person)
His essence will not be lost.
