What Really Matter

August 3, 2015

Martha L Shaw:

Thought provoking!

Originally posted on Wordsmith's Desk:


It’s not how you treat me when I am in the room,

but rather if you even think of me when I’m not.


It’s not how you treat me on my birthday,

but how you treat me on all of my un-birthdays.


It’s not how you think you care about me,

but that you show me that you care.


It’s not how much time we spend together,

but rather the memories that remain.


Of all the things that you think might matter,

The above thoughts are what really matter.

I have known you.


I float through your cloud.


You are mine.

The happy little dandelion

growing in the field

smiled toward heaven

all the while.

No one ever said

“you’re just a weed”

so he had no doubt

that he was loved.


there is a lesson

here for me?

A Morning Prayer

July 29, 2015


The sun still shines

when I stare only at the clouds.

The difference is

that when I do this

I close the blinds in my soul

to its rays.

Lord, help me not to do this!

A pot filled with weeds

oh so bravely faced the sun

and a rose appeared
