Dedication





her gentle hands, touch
children, the sick and dying,
bold dedication

~0~0

her calming words, strong
call to love and forgiveness,
my rosary beads

~0~0

lifting hearts to God,
limbs to carry the weak, strong



Written for Few Miles Haiku Challenge 2012 for the month of February:   Day 21- Dedication
