My Prayer for Ann

patiently I have sewn 
smaller and smaller circles
chanting a prayer,

to protect you
on your journey, 
to carry you 
through the tough times,
its the sound of nature
I send to soothe your pain,
and to bind you 
in our love.

I cast this net,
hoping to bring you  
back to us

and as my last stitch 
threads through,
and wings are attached 
to my heart, 
I spirit it away 
to rest with you
until you return,

smiling in our eyes

for a friend battling Cancer ... shes been a tremendous 
support to me through my own illness
