out of breath
mid-sentence

living with asthma

guilt
haunted my soul

seldom a night’s sleep

abundant love

his mercy
endures forever

the fear remains palpable
decades later

childhood nightmares

trapped in a pit
he screams…to no avail

only a dream

a fall evening
out with our son

eating…laughing

an excellent wife, i have found

her worth far exceeds
the world’s diamonds
