STANDING STRONG

A fresh poem from the bottom of my heart to my husband who has to make some very difficult choices and take some drastic steps to manage during this difficult time we’re facing together.

My love, I know you feel like a piece of trash
when things don’t work out for us as you want it to,
when you’re out of plans as to what to do,
and it seems as if you’re being led to a carcrash.

I understand that, although we know this is due to circumstances
and things we cannot really control,
the worry it brings feeds on our energy and the sobriety of the soul,
and life seems like a constant gamble having to take chances.

Nevertheless, I believe we’ll make it through this bumpy ride
of life if we keep on doing our best
and trust in God to do the rest.
So let’s keep moving, side by side,
trusting in a Higher hand and standing strong: together, united..

WINTERS OF LIFE

In times of uncertainty when I didn’t know what to do,

I could always count on you

for a calm response and sound advice,

and for words that comfort, words that are nice.
When it feels as if my troubles don’t matter to anyone at all,

you were there to help me stand and to prevent my great fall.
When I feel ugly, useless, and sad,

You always make me feel beautiful, useful, and glad.
I hope that, together, we’ll grow old,

and that we’ll keep on sheltering each other against the cold

winters of life, so that we may stand strong

against all things evil and all things wrong …
