Written in honor of my beloved friend:

Please my friend, my love take care,
for I cannot "know" what you need--
What gives?. . as your smile shines,
when all the while your insides bleed.
I will be there for you every day;
let all happenstance be kept at bay.
But of the Shadow
we must dare constant speak--
we can ill afford these secrets keep.
For in "our times" of war and crime,
a new day has, doubtless, dawned
for common Wo/Man to come 'round again
to hearth and home and . . . trust . .
And of the Corporate rat-race track,
and of email-paced relations --
let Cancer, Stroke and Heart Attack
shine illumined revelation . . .
Let us sleep long and sound;
let us eat well and round;
let us raise our children
Let neighbors reclaim
"the front porch swing,"
and if short-sight misunderstands,
remember us to the simplest Psalm:
"Love is patient; love is kind. . ."
But let us recall especially now
that above all of this
love takes time.

Fantastic write Vicky! This says so much
especially the last line, time is what no
one seems to want to share anymore, I know it's
short for most of us, still there are priorities.

I'm sorry about your friend I'll keep him in prayer.
