I’ll never know

Watching images of these I’ll never know.Sorrow for families losses that seems only to grow. End of days approaching fast hold these you love till the last. A husband, father and son, speaking to his love as terror she tries to out run. Wife of decades recalls her fear as a tornado glam her husband […]

Yes

Yes, when asked if I see your struggles, yes.Tempted to slip my hand into yours, yes. Yes, as you cross new hurdles I struggle. Great grows this hearts anguish, yes. Yes, I want only to share with you. Opening your life to mine to see, yes. Yes, yesterday was hard, but tomorrow. Tomorrow brings its […]

Grumbling for the colds morning grip. Another warming cup of coffee I sip. Replacing cartons of milk and playground trips. Humbled by what I’ve seen. Listening to […]

Where once two

There where once two slumbered you remain.Up around your face the blankets keeping the morning chill away. Sweetly your breath rises and falls with dreams that on you mind still call. Here where once I held you through the night I watch with musical delight. Climbing into clothes of labor struggling agains awakening noises. Stirring, […]
