give things time..we’ll heal…we’ll smile..
Many thanks to Stephanie Hewitt for her entry to Voices. Stephanie’s mum, who is sadly unwell at present, provided the inspiration to the poem – and she loves her very much. The poem reminds us of how quickly life can change for better or for worse. We appreciate Stephanie’s kind decision to share.
Our lives are full of wonder..of how each day will be..
we hope it’s full of love..good health..but we have to wait and see..
Our lives can take a tumble..when we’re sure it’s turned out right..
It can turn our lives upside down..and darkness hides the light..
But don’t despair..be sad..or weep..It’s just a passing day..
give things time..we’ll heal…we’ll smile..Everything will be Ok..
Stephanie Hewitt, Great Ayton, North Yorkshire
