A New Beginning - Poem by Gero Lorna

From a distance you recognize a face
that triggered an unforgettable
feeling.
A shadow of forever ago has
disappeared in a blink as you
journey back to that air conditioned
space where a yellow paper reads,
'Phyllis's' room. You
feel a warm presence, at once
your spirits lift.
A stranger with a familiar aura
enters your room and immediately an
unexplained connection was formed.
A known fear has been replaced
with a sense of great appreciation
for those who know you, love you,
and take care of you.
Amazingly yesterdays cold confined space
with the yellow paper that read, 'Phyllis's
Room' has now been transformed into
a space filled with warmth, wellness and endless
hope. For today marks the journey of a
new beginning.
