Arms Wide Open


This poem is in honor of my sisters
and dedicated to sisters everywhere


always in this life keep hopin'
meet each other arms wide open
nothing else can replace
the look of love on a face
be the first one to reach out
sharing God's love is what it's all about
smiles and hugs are meant to be treasured
no way can they ever be measured
you get back what you're givin'
the time is now while you're still livin'
express your thanks to God above
arms wide open to those you love

About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 38 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired almost 17 years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John, and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia and Haley, and Isaac, our only grandson, all blessings from God. We have four cats; Mr. Peabody, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
