I’ve heard it said

“Life is a series

Of choices.”


I have decided

To honor my love’s memory

By choosing to smile more

And find three things

To be grateful for each day


Lawrence always wanted

Me to smile more

It was hard,

watching my love deal

with Illness

It was stressful


But then he’d make me laugh

And say

”There’s that smile!”


Now I choose to smile

Though I am sad

And be grateful and thankful

Through my inevitable tears

Because I was blessed to have

A wonderful husband


Blessings are continuing

To come my way

Through family, friends,

and unexpected sources


All are gifts

From G-d
