My hero, my best friend, my grannio (a.k.a my grandmother) - poetry
She raised me like I was her own daughter from the day I was born 32 years ago.
She loved me like nonentity else has ever loved me in my life.
She stood by all through the most challenging days I've ever known.
She showed me more unqualified love and aid than I've ever imagined.
She trained me how to live, how to love, how to be a lady, how to be a mommy and how to survive.
For 78 years, she had all the time been as beneficial and immovable as a mule.
About a year ago she stood by my side and fought tooth and nail to help me carry on a bitter arrest campaign and win core charge of my astonishing two year-old son, who is her only great-grandchild, and the love of her life and my life.
After fighting with all she had classified of her and since me prevail in court, she all of a sudden became deathlike sick. Inside days she lost her capacity to walk, eat, dress herself, or even get out of bed.
I quit my job to take care of her 24 hours a day. I spent every jiffy doable at her bedside, discussion to her, frustrating to feed her, bathe her, brush her hair, alteration her clothes and make her take her medicine.
Finally my uncle, who lives 100 miles away from us, responded to my calls for help. He artificial her to see a specialist in his home state.
She spent three months at one of the top hospitals in the countryside with more than ten doctors difficult to amount out what was wrong with her. She suffered a heart attack. She had to be coupled to life support. She was artificial to have a number of tragedy surgeries to confiscate a tumor, to confiscate a blood cot, and a few others to save her life, they said.
My son was not permissible to visit her. She cried a lot. She begged me to bring him. She asked for me constantly. I was told I couldn't visit for a number of reasons, primarily, for the reason that I was too emotional. I called her every day until they took her phone away.
I attention she was going to die.
She gave me a list of clothes I had to know, like where the wellbeing deposit keys were hidden, where her cash savings was stowed at the house, where the bank financial records were and how much money she had and who was believed to get what when she died.
I prayed every day - a number of times a day. I began a once a night ritual with my son, who academic to say "God Bless Ger," when he barely said other more collective words, like "daddy. "
Somehow, some way, some where, God was listening. He gave me the furthermost blessing and answered our prayers about a month ago. The doctors as a final point identified Grannio's illness as 'vasculitis' and began intensive treatment.
Two weeks ago she was moved from the sanatorium to a analysis center, just 10 miles from our home. She can't walk and she is just commencement to regain use of her arms, but she's alive. Thank God.
God approved us a miracle by bountiful life back to my Grannio.
My faith is unfathomable.

I Saw the Universe
I can see the indigo blue of the skiesOr the navy of the nightI can see the stars wink, the grin of the moonDuring the changes of it's monthly face**I am in awe**I see the sun on it's twelve-monthly trekAlternately initiation the life in the earthAnd then loss away to allow it to sleepUntil the next spring**I am told the Universe is "out there"Beyond those stars, moon and sun,Yet the power of what I can seeIs a fathoming afar my comprehension**I am in awe**"Out there" no time, no seasons passNo sense of age, hatred or loss existOnly the infinity0f the Universe**What IS "out there"?What IS the Universe that has no end?What IS the power that creates all this?I want to see it too**And then I remember..
Farewell to Lester Graybill
I never met a man, who could shake my hand, and make my heart feel like a fireside afire.I never met a man, who could smile so easy, real honest.
As I selected up some of the polished gemstones in the rock store I began to think about what the gravel looked like already they were polished. The store had numerous rocks on exhibit viewing the ahead of and after and I realized that but for you knew what you were looking for, you could by a long way pass by a advantageous gemstone.
It's dark, it's cold, its' just six thirty,thoughts of sleep still dull my brain,As I cluster down, classified my coat,a customer clone, just behind you for a train.Insidious rain, just raining down,through weak light of creeping dawn,Paper sandwich bags and old brown cups,blowing past, look so forlorn.

Black Blood, in Jeremiahs Vines - A Poem and an Article
Black Blood, in Jeremiah's Vines [A Dream Poem]And I heard the crackling of wood, and I noticed the Lord God had made men of wood, and fire came from his mouth.Then the wind poured its grief upon us-over our sins; and I heard the words for the seventh time, "Go to the mountains!"Foolish associates of this land pray and understand-for He cometh! Thereof, toss physically to thy knees, for the roar of insubordinate men will bleed: black blood, all through the vines of Jeremiah.
Ballade of an Inca King
Ah! Leave the gold, wealth and landSays the Inca King?; In Spain, they leave the busy streets, For sail to Peruvian shores;The mumble of the gold is sweet,It glows and glistens like the sun A mountain of gold, or the grave Awaits the human, Inca-god?!Spaniards sing their songs of victoryWhere breaks the green Peruvian sea; Who now, worships the Inca King (?) Guarded at the back prisons doors-?They babble about his fair-haired ringsThey watch the winds cross the shores? They count the days that idle by, For gold they worship and will die.Envoy.
Whats A Prisoner to Do?
What's a prisoner to do when evenhandedness fails and the chaste is escorted off to jail?What's a prisoner to do once stigmatized, caged and abandoned and ostracized?What's a prisoner to do there's no one to trust; the approach fails and the outcome unjust?What's a prisoner to do when category decide the punishment is defensible and justified?What's a prisoner to do while confined in a cell; the perpetrator's free and faring quite well?What's a prisoner to do once his reputation is dead and his life has been ruined for the reason that of what a celebrity said?What's a prisoner to do when he's not believed, though he's forceful the truth, he's accepted wisdom to deceive?What's a prisoner to do as he sits all alone, no one seems to care; past contacts all gone?What's a prisoner to do meeting lost and idle and most of one's opinion develop into suicidal?What's a prisoner to do when freedom's taken away and the will to live diminishes each day?What's a prisoner to do when hedged in by strife; with no break possible; no attempt for a new life?What's a prisoner to do when he can no longer see the beauty of the sky or the waves of the sea?What's a prisoner to do when the sun he can't feel, nor the breeze of bound since his fate is sealed?What's a prisoner to do when doomed to despair but still praying to break away from the stimulating chair?Tell me, what's a prisoner to do?Rev. Saundra L.
