GRAD YOU WAIT

Yesterday
You were
A baby.

Then
It was
Kindergarten.

Then
It was
Middle School.

Then
You were
Driving a car.

Now
You have
Finished your schooling.

Grad
You
Wait.

Where
Has all
The time gone?

ITS ONLY PAPER

Its
Only
Paper.

Until
The
Ink
Becomes words.

Until
Words
Become
My heart.

Until
My heart
Becomes
The stories.

Until
The stories
Become my life.

ANGELS, AWARE

Late night
Or
Wee hours of morning.

The phone
Will
Half ring.

That is not coincidence
There is a reason
Angels, aware.

Bath time
The last of suds
Are heart-shaped.

That is not coincidence
There is a reason
Angels, aware.

Quarters
Found
In strange places.

That is not coincidence
There is a reason
Angels, aware.

NOTE TO YOUNGER SELF

If I could write a note
To my younger self
What would I say?

You will fall in love
Twice
In your life.

Your second love
Will move away
Your first will stay.

He will ask you
To marry him
Three times.

In three words
I would say to you
Follow your heart.

Something
Your older self
Didn’t do.
