Arrears

Big and small,
we make them
all, your
choice to make,
acknowledge
that mistake,
move on in
grace, not
a pouty face,
walk, be
humble, or
mumble and
grumble;
conceit’s
stride
truly won’t
hide, your
great fall,
when you
ignore
them
all.

Love’s cost

I gladly pay,
for each wonder-
filled day; of
sorrow borne,
cheerfully, I
mourn-
to have
known,
sunny days,
wily ways,
tossing
joy, sharing
pain,
treading
through,
this day,
of rain.

how I feel
your pain,
through so
many miles,
penetrating
my core,
pain, so
deep
shatters
mountains,
uproots
trees,
and
brings
me,
your
dear friend,
to
my
knees.
