PAD 10-3 lone


Hope

The hope he held out
in the tragic situation
was like a lone, bright star
in the night sky.

PAD 10-2 lone



Someone with Skin

I’m never alone since God is near
But it’s nice to have someone with skin
I depend on Him year after year
I’m never alone since God is near
But His presence is not always clear
I need someone with whom I can grin
I’m never alone since God is near
But it’s nice to have someone with skin

PAD 10-1 lone


I’d feel like a lone poet
If it weren’t for poeming pals
Thank God for the internet

PAD 9-3 love



Easter Love

Springtime
Bunnies
Chicks
Chocolate

Love
Jesus
Easter
Church

I don’t know what the former
has to do with the latter, except
it’s a celebration of love and delight,
a time we know we can enjoy life,
and look forward to a new one.
because of the resurrection.

PAD 9-2 love


Birthday Visit

On his birthday,
he came to visit
and sat down by me
and held my hand
like he used to.

Now, that he’s with another caregiver,
I’m always relieved and grateful
when he remembers me.

PAD 9-1 love


You’ve Got People

“You’ve got people,”
my daughter told her dad
when he worried about
money, health and home
after two strokes.

For Christmas,
she bought him
a warm blanket
complete with pictures
of our family reunion,
with “You’ve got people”
in bold letters.

A blanket of warm fuzzies.
