by Leonard M Hawkes

No, I am not hopeless
In spite of imperfection,
For He has offered faith,
And I believe.

And loss is not unlimited,
Ownership is not mine;
For everything belongs to Him,
My greed, deception.

So Death, you too aren't real--
Mere changed perception;
Life eternal is His gift
And our protection.


Author's Note: . . . thoughts at Carl's Jr. in Brigham City, UT after a day of art, family history work, visiting my 99 year old mother, and a doctor visit for aging knees.
