Very nice… indeed, you are just warming up with this! Great work.
Roughly 22 years ago my wife went through a very dark and difficult season of life dealing with some issues from her past. There was little I could do but pray and wait and be there. Then one day I happened to write a poem for her and left it as a surprise when I headed off to work. At the time I drove a truck for the county and had lots of time to think and write. I ended up leaving her a poem every day (M-F) for over six months as a way of encouraging her. Most were silly and sloppy but they communicated my love and she treasures them to this day. I love that you use poetry to explore life! Thanks!
What a great story! Truly, the power of a well written word.
