Faith dresses up in words
from the pulpit
leaping across faces
about truth, forgiveness
silently thoughts reflect, thinking
"Can the Lord truly help our
a couple dares to think.
"Hope is eternal," says the Pastor
as if reading their thoughts.
Man and wife continue to pray.
"Stop that!" one child says. "Mom!
He's pinching me," the other whines.
"Help us make it through another
day," is a silent wish.
