Forever Home in Your Heart

What would you give to a homeless dog?
A little dog who in life had a bad start,
Give to him all the love and care he needs,
Give him a forever home in your heart.

What would you give to an abused child?
A child too afraid to speak and reach out,
Give that child some hope and fast help,
Find all the legal help you can and shout.

What would you give one who loves you?
One whose love is deep and always sincere,
Even if your love is not the same in return,
Just your kindness and friendship is so dear.

What would you give an elderly person?
One who is lonely and has no family,
And so needs just a little attention,
A friendly visit would be received happily.

What would you give a tired single Dad?
Or a single Mom who needs some relief,
Babysitting or shopping would be great,
In friendship it gives them belief.

What would you give a world in distress?
Give to the victims of terror and disaster,
A helping hand or at least some prayer,
Help them get back on their feet faster.

What would you give your wounded warriors?
Who put themselves in harm’s way for you,
Or those of the ultimate sacrifice,
A forever home in your heart is true.

What would you give ……

I have always liked to write. It is important to me that writing comes from my heart and soul. When writing poetry, if I do not feel a spiritual connection to what I am writing on, I will discard it and go on to something I can connect with on a spiritual level. I live in the moment, I write from the past or beyond the veil. When writing fiction I go with whatever inspires me at the moment - it could be funny, sorrowful, romantic or sometimes done with the use of colloquial language from mountain folk or other cultural regions. I began writing content online in 2007, starting with BellaOnline - A Voice For Women, where I was the Native American Editor, Folklore & Mythology Editor, and the Appalachian Editor. I also wrote articles for The Examiner, Daily Two Cents, and Yahoo. I am a freelance writer for Fiverr. I am currently an author on HubPages, a member/author of the Maven Coalition, and Senior Editor and an author for The Creative Exiles. Most of what I write takes a lot of research and I love it. Even if it is a fictional story, I will research for accuracy in whatever it takes to make my characters, their era, their location, etc. become realistic to the reader. I hope you enjoy my works. Thank you for visiting.

    Poignant piece Phyllis, as so many people these days keep to themselves out of fear and do not practice kindness. Well penned and appropriate as to what society needs in caring for one another.
