this bed









this is the bed
where all have gathered
as long as i can remember
children come here

days ups and downs revisited
sometimes enveloped
more often perched
laughter
 jokes
we make plans

somehow it is like king's X
safe
at day's end
ollie ollie in free

now grandchildren come
squeeze in

this holy place
of consecrated love
made visible
to offer real rest
from worldly care

This says so much.
It is not what I knew.
But I saw it with my husband to be ,
it is what we know and will always.

Okay, how blessed you are! And I'm sure it's a reflection of your beautiful heart.
Thank you for letting me know you added these.
