Chapter 12 of the book Saying Goodbye to Phyllis
just because
"Make a Place for Us" by Barb Hensongispsaca
I envy you, my dearest friend,
you're where I long to be -
you're walking with our Lord above
and now fully pain free.

You walk and dance and write again
without another care,
and I can't wait to meet with you
beside God's golden stair.

You always helped me with my art,
corrections made each day.
We even joked of having tea -
sometime I'd come and stay.

My participles still dangle,
my commas don't appear,
my meter still has work to do
and that I even hear.

I miss your help and stern advice,
you always helped me write.
My muse is now a wee bit lost,
my heart a little light.

Now you can make a club for us,
we'll join when we get there.
We'll laugh and talk of writing then
beside God's golden stair.


The book continues with Phyllis's Green Pastures. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.
