Poem Written by a Student in Tribute to David Frisby

Something, Sometimes

        by Diana Abath

Something told me to move towards you
A camaraderie of the skin—yet not that simple

A connection of the heart, the mind
No—for I knew neither about yours or mine in that moment

Something told me to move towards you
A message—in your stance, your sitting, your comfort to just be

Sometimes we need others to show us how to just
Be—with our selves, in our work, in our worlds

Something told me to move toward you
I listened, I doubted—I listened again

For a minute, a long minute I did not know where
You wanted to take me—motivate me to take myself

Soon I realized, sooner understood
Your trust in me to do so
My mentor, my friend—never foe

Sometimes, something moves you
And you just have to follow—you have to go
Toward its light and learn to be

Thank you for that legacy
