Writings from Friends > "ARISE" by Jennifer

10 Jun 2009

Dear Kay,

Today I woke with this:
What is this heavy weight upon my heart?
 It presses down hard on me.
It is memories, and dreams of the future
Unfulfilled and not forgotten.
Shake them off and ARISE, I heard,
This is dead weight.
It is Dawn, a new DAY...
Let your heart soar toward the heavens!
It was like a physical weight on my chest when I woke, and I knew exactly what it was, so I came downstairs and wrote it out.

Then I read Don’s latest poem -- and it’s like he is writing for me. I am truly amazed.
All Love, Jennifer
