If I Miss . . .

If I miss the miracle
Of smile upon your face,
If I fail to recognize 
Your fingerprint and place,
Where will I be?  Where can we be?
When moments are esteemed,
For what they are: a present form.
We are, by love, redeemed.

Not Taken

Not taken.
Advice with love, 
Not taken.
Soul's reflection,
Not taken.

Left to wonder
If parental
Advice ceases
Once the body
Leaves the home.

Thy Will Be Done

Depressed, suppressed,
Yet, smile emerges
Like a weed
In manicured lawn.
I don't belong.
I know this well.
But, I offer
Solace when
It's the hardest;
Comfort when
 I need rest.
Loving when
Most undeserved
Ask prayers.
Trusting God
To save my soul,
And, souls of others.
When all is said,
Your will be done.
