What a full life you shared in this heartfelt poem. Thank you.
Wow this is beautiful. You took me on a journey through time and it was a delight. I also really liked the praying for the kids in the park. What a wonderful inspiration this piece is.

So warm and evocative, in its simple style, with strong reflections that spread the hope around. Great entry.
Ah, to dwell in the thoughts and memories of another and to come out with revelations of our own. Great job.

Lovely, life-reminiscing poem!

I especially appreciated the this stanza: "They knew of times of abundance, they also understand deep lack
They enjoyed many days of vast sunshine, they also endured nights deeply black
But through it all they knew Jesus and of His great power to provide
A steady and stable presence, a sure and safe place to abide"

I also thought your closing stanza was a perfect way to end this piece!

Great job! :)
