~Sunday Poem


I am the sister of him,
And he is my brother.
He is too little for us
To talk to each other.

So every morning I show him
My doll and my book;
But every morning he still is
Too little to look.

Poem by Dorothy Aldis

Andrew Wyeth.
When one door of happiness closes,
another opens,
but often we look so long at the closed door
that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.
