Best Poem of Laurence Overmire

To Gov. William Bradford (Of Plymouth Plantation)

I think of you now
My 10th great grandfather
I think of you now when
I should have thought of you
Many times before.

The debt of gratitude I owe
Too great to ever be repaid
If not for you, I would not
Be here.

And yet, how many others can say
The same
This entire nation perhaps was
Held together by the seed of your
Committed strength and character.

Across the great ocean you came
And left all but a dream behind
Your wife, lost overboard
Before she ever set foot to shore.

Yet you endured, you and only a
Handful of those ...

Read the full of To Gov. William Bradford (Of Plymouth Plantation)

A Prayer For The Dying

Every day admit me
Please
Into the portal of the
Divine
Allow me to feel
The sublime majesty of life
To know
The sanctity of relationship
To touch
