Did you watch the sky last night, I did
and was amazed how sleek colours were
more like an eyeball squished tightly
peeking over the horizon wondering if I had
been a good person, and so sure
I was, because it is part of my DNA
AND besides my momma taught me well, to
grow up into a good Catholic boy, even
be a priest and make the family so proud,
but I decided no, 'cause I wanted to be married
one day, raise children, come home to baking
and other delights, and I did so with family
time waiting for little ole me.

My wife, Esther and I really enjoy writing. It is an excellent salve, in addition to prayers, a great wife and family during my continuing recovery from a stroke/aneurysm. You can contact us at: email@example.com re comments on our work. We live in Truro, Nova Scotia, Canada. Pray for others.
