Sally Martin’s poem dedicated to Pua Magasiva: 

Have had too many of my moments

This week at work

Where my heart has stumbled

And I’ve lost my breath

You know, those moments

My moments, you know well

When with a single glance

You could somehow see

My spirit falter⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Those moments that you saw me through

When you’d play a prank

Make a joke

When you’d distract all the eyes

And all the lenses

To just give me a chance

To stand behind a door

To gather myself in private

To carry on⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I would’ve done that for you⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

People would’ve lined up to do that for you⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Lined up to hold you through a million rough moments⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I wonder if you can see them all now

Lining up to hold your family

Hold your girls

Your precious girls

Surrounding them

Loving them⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I hope you can see them now

All these people

Who love you so hard⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I hate your demons

But I love your guts

And man, I’mma miss you
