Thank You, Lady
Kiss her cheek, I kissed
a small thank
you for the 'baby tears'
for my wife.
"A gift for her,"
"for Christmas, I want to thank you
for your kindness."
She's a happy lady, that
old woman in a Home for the Aged,
she has simple pleasures and
her appreciation is great.
For one brief moment my lips
touched her cheek
that soft wrinkled flesh,
for one brief moment
I was her son.
Thank you, lady.

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: firstname.lastname@example.org re comments on our work. We live in Truro, Nova Scotia, Canada. Pray for others.
