THANKS for MONDAYS?

I am thankful
for the pewter sunshine
watching me from the garden &
the 16 year old who wrote the quote

always present
he prayed - it wasn't my religion.
he ate - it wasn't what I ate.
he spoke - it wasn't my language.
he dressed - it wasn't what I wore.
he took my hand - it wasn't the color of mine.
but when he laughed- it was how I laughed,
and when he cried - it was how I cried.

The pewter sunshine
is always mine
to bring the day
through the garden gate.
