Inside looking out Many phases of the moon Her last loving hug
Locked in with her memories Grandma sheds a single tear
Time is most priceless possession to the elderly. So to treat them as if their time is “less than” or to prolong taking precious time away from loved ones is intolerably cruel. Instead of the elderly ”taking one for the team” let’s work together so that families can reunite and be whole again.
Wear a mask, socially distance, wash your hands. Let’s beat this thing before it is too late for your loved ones.
You and I always seemed to be
On the opposite sides of a bridge
Neither able to cross without it swinging wildly
Tension thick as humid gulf air
Impatience and disappointment our love language
You and I alike in so many ways
So sensitive we each tried to bite first
Both with a stubborn shell of protection
Curiosity for life’s most enigmatic questions our common ground
With expectations released, forgiveness our final passage

Once upon a time We came across a waterfall Hidden deep in the woods Where we splashed and played Like giddy children In the argent liquid pools And let the cool mist Spray diamonds in our hair Our warm embrace A safe haven As if the whole world Was just this place At just this time Our own private island
