Featured Review on this writing by DampKitten




Winter came too quickly upon us

and marred with sadness,

the porcelain faces of our children.


Allow us, then, Betsy, to better sense

the majesty that is yours with God,

to reconcile our loss

and the desperation of our souls.


We poor are yet earth-bound,

and not ascended to the highest of Kingdoms.


Our sun is a hot marble,

distanced beyond the whisper of our prayers.


Yet, the light of your smile was left to us,

by which we are guided to the isles of hope.

Seems to have left a powerful presence & as powerful a memorial from within a smile!
