There was a knock at the door and I went to see

Who was the unexpected visitor here to see me

There stood a person near and dear to my heart

I hadn’t seen in the years we’d been apart

He’d changed a bit but not too much

The twinkle in his eyes–dimple in his chin

Drew me as it did back then

More than that was the place in my heart

Where coveted memories will never depart

We visited a while. I laughed and giggled as a child

The past became the present for only a short time

Oh how wonderful to be young again

Not in body, surely in mind

He still took my breath away

As he did the very day

I first laid eyes on him

When I thought He’d never look my way

I was grateful for answered prayers–to know he was doing fine

My smile lingered as I slowly shut the door

A sense of calm covered me when I realized

I might never see him again until we meet in eternity

Ease into the day

Expecting what comes your way

Excited about life’s twists and turns

Exalt the one whose breath you breathe

Ecstatic when he blows the breeze

Enduring until he knows you see

NaPoWriMo 2015 – Breeze

Warm breeze bending and bowing the trees

Wind slipping through the young new leaves

No loud whistling only a slight sound

The soul of the wind letting you know

It’s making a sound

Recognize I’m here even if you can’t see

I’ll come separately in many different forms

I’ll surprise you appearing all in one

Today I’m here as one

To calm you down and have some fun

Bend with me – The Breeze

NaPoWriMo 2015 – Will They Know

Will they know I’ll be gone very soon

Will they know I’ll never return

Will they know they have to fend for themselves

Will they know the good food will be gone

Will they know if they show up on the patio

And bang on the window they might not be welcomed

Will they know they have to make new friends

And I will miss them very much

I know they don’t know
