I’m adding a new feature to Boomer Back-Beat this week called, “Poetic Expressions by Sherry”. I am happy and excited to feature the work of, Sherry C. Garland. What follows is her first offering. Enjoy!
A GIFT FROM GOD
BY: Sherry C Garland
We lost each other-just by chance, somewhere along the way,
We grew and gained experience to help us cope with each confusing day
Decisions are made with challenges, trying to deal with a re-emerging past.
Still they continue to grow, each memory, seeming more vivid than the last.
We raised our families and ourselves,
Others mistakes we tried not to mirror,
Through health’s debilitating afflictions,
Yet having strength in a love’s convictions
We were forced to face a life long fear.
So after many, many years it is so great to meet again.
To reacquaint hearts that have known sorrow, yet soared.
We are friends once again,
And we both know my Dear Friend,
Reuniting was all the work of the Lord.
Sherry has worked as a secretary and in sales. She is now retired and lives with her husband in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
