Poem written for an amazing woman and friend who has a special place in my heart.
Blessing of Spring
It must have been sweet Spring with her pure, fresh promise
who flourished our deep friendship
like the misty morning dew.
With finely feathered wings you flew into my heart
deftly captivating me
with uniquely loving arts.
Wisdom, humor and grace,
Dreams we dreamed together
My precious little bird
with eyes so bright and blue, brief was our time of friendship
a garden of love it grew.
Heaven is our treasure. God's promises are true.
Though we never chanced to meet my heart will recognize you.
Spring brought me a dear friend, Fall's chill bore her away.
While trees lay bare and dormant Spring's blessing lives every day.
Dedicated to Iva, my friend.
