(February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)


Not too many are easy to make.
Without faith.
And teeth to grit with tears to cry.

Collected possessions to leave behind,
Can be devastating to one who finds...
Remembering time after time,
What it took to collect...
'Things' thought once to be so precious.

But a leaving behind possessions,
Can not be compared...
To a heart that breaks unexpectedly.
And from someone loved nothing can replace.
With it known to be shown,
God decides this kind of decision to make.
As we are left to do the best we can with faith,
To face and take it to condone and alone.
