She sleeps - hands under
one cheek in prayer-like fashion.
Gone are the French braids
lovingly styled by her mother.
I look upon her angelic face
aware that one day soon,
she'll be more interested in friends
than visits from Nana and Papa.
So, I've reserved a shelf in my heart
to place all memories
shared with my Brooklynn.
I am a 66-year young Christian writer whose desire is to make a positive difference in people's lives through my writing. My purpose is to show people the love of Jesus Christ. I have four wonderful children (two natural/two step) and seven beautiful grandchildren.
