Pieces of my Heart




When I was much younger, I never wanted them – was too busy.

When they arrived, slowly, separately, differently:

we were startled by what Life does to her babies –

dear God, why ?

Who abandoned a blind child, what happened to this

little girl with a scarred knee .. today she grins at me, says,

‘Never mind Ma, they did not know what they were doing,

we have each other,

see? ”



Here are these days when I write and write –

when Love is too much to bear.

Our first daughter born ‘ naturally’,

the girl with the happy knee and,

our son

with angel eyes.



( Never be afraid of Life when It meets you with arms opened wide )
