Loving Cup - Poem by Theodora (Theo) Onken

We had our day
Sun kissed
As a glass
Of lemonade

Our world
As shimmering
Glimmering spirals
Of sheer hope

We shared joy
By the cup fulls
Singing like songbirds
At the dawn of new spring

We danced 'neath
Cobalt blue skies
As trees blown by the wind
As if there would be no tomarrow

We lived
Through the storms
That sometimes rolled in
And we survived

In the end
It was so noted
That we lived
Life to the full

With no uncharted waters left
And no more mountains
To climb
Yes, indeed we had our day
