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.
