Valentine

I turn to you

in the middle

of the night

the warmth of

your skin

next to mine

your soft,

gentle breathing

reminding me

I am safe

safe in your

snuggle

safe

in

my mind.

Sarah and the Sonoma Fire

It was a long drive

rain, wind, and visible signs

remains of an exhaustive

explosive

fire

littered the view

 

My throat aches

my eyes bleary

from unshed

tears

as they search

for signs

of life

Then we saw you

and your family

and my heart filled

with

an overwhelming

sense of love

and

joy.

A Child’s Birth

 

All the pain

and grueling struggle,

to bring you here

was worth the trouble.

 

When your head appeared,

we were both intrigued,

and as you slipped forth

I’ve never felt so relieved!

 

We counted your fingers,

and tugged at your toes,

we felt your smooth skin,

then we touched your pink nose!

 

I wanted to cry

but my throat felt so tight,

I had longed for the day

we could kiss you good-night!

Happy Birthday Sarah Anne
