In Debra's Kitchen - Selected Poems by Debra Lee Cathcart
There are times that test the best of us, there are times that show our worst.
I want to see the best in us, if not I will be cursed.
With painful and unseemly thoughts, which I don’t want to have,
I want to see the best of us and that which we never had .
It’s hard to say goodbye to one who said goodbye so soon,
A different house, a different life, a larger private room…
If such is so I wish you well and promise you to keep,
Within my thoughts and in my heart so dearly and so deep.
