Stolen dreams
are being redeemed
at long last.
She said yes
to those big blue eyes, taking
her baby girl home.

P. Wanken

  1. Well done, Paula. I still follow your Facebook page and your poetry. It’s good to see your poetry springing up again like Daffidils (or the weeds in my yard. It’s also great to read in Facebook about the happiness you’ve found in your life. God’s blessings. Keep up the writing.
