Watching You Sleep

20170915_165534

As I sit here watching you sleep I notice how you tuck your hand under

your chin, your soft brown arm folded gently

over the white blankets

and I’m struck by your beauty again,

your sculpted face,

the cheeks I’ve kissed

so many times

and I wonder

how the heavens ever survived

after you were sent to me.

 

She’s coming home today!! Wahoo!

She is still recovering, with strong medication but she can recover at home.

And we are waiting for the results of a biopsy, which to be honest is scary because of the fear of cancer.

We are so grateful for all of you! Thank you so much for your thoughts, prayers, encouragement, and well wishes! Your love and support have been amazing.

Thanks again, and peace to you!

A Closer Walk

20160514_123723

If we walk closer with the one we love, we will always reap

the reward. A whisper, a word, a touch, an embrace

returns to us a thousand fold.

Gentleness.

I Realize All Over Again

When we are on the boat My Love, I realize all over again

that our world is not destroyed yet, that there is still love, and the two of us

can stand together, and proudly proclaim,

there is yet some sanity, as we choose

to love and strengthen

each other.

     

Let’s join hands, once again.
