Poem: A Beautiful Dove 2021

Spoke to me this morning,

When I felt so alone, frighten,

Of the haunting memory,

Of an old soul: Her songs,

Gave me hope, tells me,

My heart is big enough,

To love me—to know,

That I am worthy, and I weep,

Raindrops, on my black tee;

As I spoke kindly, today to my,

fragile soul.
