All of Life’s Gifts

An island to myself,

I thought back to when

I was at my prettiest,

a coming-of-age I loved

so well when the soft

rain of girl talk was still

in the air and the bubble

of our laughter would

turn the heads of other

women who’d often pause

to spray their permed hair.

Lost I am in the memory

of those golden years;

happiness leavening my

heart, the dash of joy

sprinkled from God’s

fingertips, my faith in

a future I’d playfully

planned out for myself;

a teaspoon of peace I’d

live on by day, the soft

stroke of summer the Lord

would leave me with, and

I’d hear His laughter in

the windy trees, every

morning see all of life’s

gifts.
