Hidden quote by - Reihold Nieburhr At the funeral I whispered GOD, GRANT ME the strength to get through this day THE SERENITY to rise above my weeping the power TO ACCEPT this death of a person I love and bless me with fortitude to welcome THE THINGS I cannot transform and I CANNOT CHANGE and a way to express my pain and sorrow and THE COURAGE to let this soul go to the afterlife to be reborn and TO CHANGE with eternal respect THE THINGS that I CAN and with determination as I whisper again "all my love for eternity" AND give me THE WISDOM oh God give me the wisdom TO KNOW and understand what this life journey was ... it was a life well lived not a life wasted for I know THE DIFFERENCE _________________________ January 22, 2022 Written for the contest, Keola Secret Ka-Ching- Cash Cash Cash sponsor, Hilo Poet

You rose to the challenge with a most able pen, Constance! This certainly was not easy to write; I love how all the words/phrases fitted in comfortably, naturally...and the content is beautiful and uplifting. ~ Regards // paul

Absolutely beautiful and so spiritually poignant, Constance. I am intrigued by weaving a quotation into a poetry form in a way that brings meaning to both. Superb job!
