Can It Be?


Can it be?

(Cinquains – 3)



Oh Joy!

Awake and fine

Skills that doctors employ

With just a touch of the Divine

She’s mine!

I’m awed.

Modern medicine

truly deserves applaud,

as my wife’s healing has begun.

Praise God!

And if

it all goes well,

and she can finally say goodbye

to all her years of chronic hell,

I’ll cry.



Author Notes Call me a cry baby, but I will.
