Remember

Remembrance Alice Birkin
Alice Birkin

The newspaper told of your kindness

That you were a nurse for thirty years

Reported that you had three children

Married for even longer than your career

~

It said that you died placidly in your bed

But you were like that all of your days

Talked of your charities and functions and such

Detailed your civic mindedness with praise

~

Your obituary did not say it all though

Forgotten was your prayerful devotion

Worshiping and singing all the old hymns

Your soul would praise and fill with emotion

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
