May 8th


Go to church,
like any other Sunday.

Serve and teach
till each child leaves
for the day.

You came to watch
to shadow
to learn…

I was hesitant at first,
for I always am.

But then we talked,
and it was revealed,
our prayers had perhaps been answered?

Want to be friends?

Why not?
Quality over quantity?
she asked.

I smiled,
we are similar
even though we are
from different parts of the world.

We became friends
as easily as children.
