Your Dying Spouse 595 - The First Day Of Spring

It was almost like the old days;
it was almost like a song,
before my life went sideways
and everything went wrong.
It started before sunrise,
dawn greeted by the birds,
telling of the day's surprise
in a chorus without words.
My buried hope arising,
expectation near awake
and a spirit, enterprising
to repair a lost heartache.
It's been years since I felt a lift
like this morning's spirit-gift.

Music from Barry Manilow, with Daybreak.

Thanks to Carol Ashby, Blessed Are The Pure Of Heart is back on Kindle, and will be available in paperback soon.

Friends are everything. I couldn't have done it.

Marley, the canine waif from Afghanistan, whom WE helped save, has a Facebook page! Please drop by to see how happy he is today.

Below are my recent releases on Kindle -please excuse their presence in the body of the blog. I haven't the energy to get them up as 'buttons' in the sidebar. You can click on the covers to go to the Amazon links.


  1. so, so happy, there was a moment of good, and light, and lightness... Praying for you dear, sweet brother/friend. Your homecoming is gonna ROCK!

    1. Jane, thank you so much! Yes, today was really a gift.

      You're in our prayers.

  2. (((((Andrew)))))
    My late brother said our mother was "a tough old bird."
    She endured much. So much!
    And she still finds moments of joy.
    Please consider it a compliment when I say you are "a tough old rooster."

      I take it as the highest of compliments. Thank you!

  3. Oh I am thankful that the Lord gave you a sweet gift today! You are in my prayers so much. May He keep covering you with His care. Your poems get more beautiful all the time! Thank you for sharing them, and for sharing your heart too.

    1. Bettie, thank you so much for these lovely, loving words, and most especially for your prayers; you are in ours.

  4. Glad you had a good morning. And I love the poem.

    1. Thank you so much, Jan!

      Good mornings are now a choice, one that I intend to renew each day.
