See Things For What They Can Be

I Keep A Picture

As I go throughout days,

I see you as work

Swallows me.

There you are when traffic

Snarls.

Times I feel so

Alone,

I close my eyes and

Bright

Is the face that

Brings a smile

Or more than a few.

It is not always

That I see you,

But

When the moment arises,

It pleases me.

To the Reader

This is written for

You.

Read yet again

Save this.

Someone comes to

Mind?

Matters not living or

Gone,

Baby born,

A sibling, an uncle

Or maybe an aunt

Can’t forget the

Grands

younger and elder

There is a friend,

Dear and sweet.

A husband A wife

A Love Like No Other.

Read again,

Who do U see?

My Experience Is–

Here I sit all in wonder, the past few weeks I’ve been waaaay down under.

Feeling better now not totally sure, what brought the change, to my door.

I received a message from a dear sweet friend, telling me to get it together I can’t pretend,

That I’ve not been myself to do and create, but Someone else who had taken a stake

And drove it deep within, my very being, causing such a stir I was not singing

Nor feeling very jolly, but stiff as a board to be used as a dolly,

To move objects, from here to there;  now that the cloud is gone and in the air,

Is the feeing of hope, and as I tried to cope,

I did my daily prayer, and wondered then, what I thought was unfair.

Why do these things happen to me? I give of myself totally free,

Of seeking in return a favor or two. That’s just me, and how I am through

And through, but still I wonder at times, and know to be true,

That coming from this I will be stronger and wiser. I will take this experience to use as a visor,

Because when the sun is bright I want to see, and use the visor—God’s gift to me.
