love, memory, and hope

taking turns
letting each other go
only to learn again
how love grows,
Mother

another year has passed
since my mother’s passing
I sit and quietly read
a book she would like too

in loving memory
Enola M. Borgh (1917 – 2004)

But he knoweth the way that I take:
when he hath tried me,
I shall come forth as gold.

Job 23: 10 (KJV)

H ave faith as you journey
O n and trust God’s love and
P romises for you
E ven today and then always

“taking turns” was published in Bell’s Letters Poet (No. 115January 2006).
