On This Good Day

My dear friend Katie was able to visit "K" in Haiti today. In an effort to describe my thoughts based on what I know of their brief time together, I wrote this poem.

On This Good Day

Expectant at the door she'd wait
Swinging wide was an open gate
On this good day, for this one girl

Running out with laughter spilling
Love came in, for her soul's filling
On this good day, for this one girl

Longing eyes on jubilant face
Given hope of a future place
On this good day, for this one girl

Gripping baby doll and blanket
No one is allowed to take it
On this good day, for this one girl

Soft spoken voice says hard goodbyes
Love hopes now not to weep and cry
On this good day, for this one girl

Petite in frame she lays to rest
Our pictures held against her chest
On this good day, for this one girl

Love, love was dispatched over sea
Delivered too, a little peace
On this good day, for this one girl

Oh my! Could you have made it more emotional for me?? :)

Love you, love K, well both K's! But SUPER jealous of Katie that she got to hear that little voice and hug those petite shoulders... Let's leave our husbands with our girls and have a turn!!
