Chosen Words

Wednesday, August 2, 2017 by The Press in Opinion

What is a “God moment?” I didn’t know, I cannot pretend,

Until I picked up the phone and called an old friend.

When she heard my voice, she was silent at first, then said ...

This is a “God Moment.”

I said, “What do you mean?”

She said, “I am now in a nursing home, sad and alone

hoping someone would visit or maybe just phone...

And here you are ... that is a “God Moment!”

I was in shock and in awe to think I was there

To help someone who was in despair.

It brought up some memories of times in the past:

The time I fell on the floor when

Suddenly, I heard a knock at my door!

Or the time I was crying and not feeling well,

when my neighbor stopped by with a story to tell.

I could go on and on with stories like this.

I realize now that my life’s filled with bliss.

When writing my poetry, words seem to flow

I wondered where they all came from,

But, now I know...

Each one was a “God Moment!”
