illumination

I have no death sentence.
The light of day still falls
as it had done before,
only now the evening comes
with a bit more grace.

    Oooh, it hurts to read it. But thank you. Don’t we all need to see so clearly. Love you.

  4. Reading it again….I’d say beging the poem with “I have no death sentence.” and cut th efirst 4 lines. What do you think of that?
