HAPPY FAMILY DAY-- A REPOST FOR LINDA MARIE- WE MISS YOU


She still remains just out of reach,
the other, better me,
for a thousand flaws weigh me down
like stingers on bumblebees.

Oh, how I want to change,
to shine my small light far,
for time is as harsh as mankind,
forgetting fallen stars. 

Angels beseech to keep the peace,
do as you’d have done,
turn your cheek and forgive all,
follow God’s risen Son.

All is possible, this is true,
when we live with love,
yet days I waste in argument
with words which twist and shove.

Each dawn brings its share of lessons
if I let myself grow,
then open up my guarded heart
and kindness always show.
 
One day, I pray I’ll face the mirror
with dazed recognition,
blessed to see that I’ve but become
our Savior’s reflection.


*DEDICATED TO LINDA MARIE, OUR SWEETHEART IN HEAVEN

Love sent on this weekend of love
(in Canada they have created a long weekend out of Valentine's Day, 
Monday is Family Day)
It seems fitting to post tributes on this weekend about all we hold dear
