Poem In Response

Inspired by a friend, writer Carla Milho & her recent work, “Rest In Peace” – where she discusses the gift of life, present challenges, and an optimistic future – I wrote this short poem in response

The dark corners of empty rooms
Negative events of the past
I’ll put aside such memories
Like ghosts not meant to last.

Instead, the sounds of happiness
From friends who really care
This miracle of life, so grand
It’s mine – to live and share.

My dreams ahead, pursued with hope
I’ll focus on the positive
Because the best is yet to come
And, yes, I’ve got so much to give!
