A Little More Time to Care

A Little More Time to Care

There was a faithful woman blind since birth.
She lived with “Mom” and never was a wife.
Her mother, over ninety, knew the worth.
The blind one bought a condo…her new life.

Later on, she, blind, suddenly died.
Young relatives for “things” quickly turned foes.
Soon death was overcome; her faith thus tried.
Priests blessed her; said, “Arise.” And she arose.

She changed her will; gave one priest everything.
A few weeks later, her dear mother died.
It seemed that life had dealt a bitter sting.
But death returned...together, they abide.

I really enjoyed the "twist" in this poem that allowed the blind woman to live long enough to change her will. Terrific poem! Congratulations on your success in my contest. Love, carolyn
