Poetry, creative writing and a desire to inspire….. Hebrews 11:1 – Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.

Only For A Little While

Strands of hair on the sweater I wore that day

Memories of hands drifting apart

I see a darkened room that once beat with life

Light forces its way through slightly open drapes

The air is thin, empty of our fragrance

We knew in our hearts it would only be for a little while

A promise made without verbal confirmation

A single rose stretches toward the thin beam of light breaking through

Strands of hair on the sweater I wore that day

I do not brush them off

I breathe deeply into the sweater

If only to remember
