To Cherish

To cherish one in their childhood is to give

Must we empathize with our foes to forgive?

Slapdash ideation hoarded in a sieve

Spilled ink replenishing our will to live

To cherish one in their dotage is to give

-Eugenia

        I treasure what you Give, because I know you care
        Give and keep on Giving,
        You are a wonderful kind ‘Dear’

      2. The past few weeks has taken me to the point of ‘no more’. Somehow though when I am totally at the brink of lowest there is still more to give from within. Thanks, appreciate your support … #regenerating
