You just can't imagine how many months I've been trying to do it to where it was not a mile long.   : )   Anyway, it probably is longer than yours, but I'm sure you will shorten it for me. . . and I want you to.   Pat
 

      Peace of Mind

 

There’s no accounting for it

or the way it turns up in a chemo room

in the form of a bright, lively nurse

who sticks your port

and keeps returning to check on you

even though every chair is filled.

 

How can you not let go of fear?

You sip the coffee handed you

as you take in the moment

that honors the lost breast.

You try to memorize the smile

of the one with the French accent seated

beside you.  Her being here proves

that you were not abandoned,

that peace of mind saved its brightness

for you alone.

 

Peace of mind is the bank account

left by the former husband you never really understood,

the one set on coming to his granddaughter’s birth

though his heart was congesting

and breaking.

 

It finally comes to the farmer’s wife

bereft of child, to a little girl

whose drunk father sits in a dark corner.

It comes to the puppy lying outstretched

in front of a heater,

to a widower examining cirrus clouds.

 

It even comes to rocky cliffs barren of trees,

to fog gathering and lifting its skirts,

to the bent flowers weary of standing straight.

Hey Pat...NotePad should be a word processing program in your Accessories (WordPad is too powerful...but it would work)
