Shed not your humanity.
Wear love on your sleeve.

    I LOVE this! Wear your tears…..:) We often told our kids, if they were sad having to say goodbye to someone or something or someplace, that was okay because it meant they’d given their all, they’d really gotten to know and “BE” with that person or place. Wear your tears. Wear love on your sleeve. That is, after all, humanity. Wonderful response to the prompt….smiling I am. So glad you posted!

    I’m fairly certain there is more grace around than we think. Those without grace are just louder. Your poetry will certainly help. It isn’t loud, it is graceful. 🙂
