    For my dear sista/friend and her sister...


    You share the hot blood of
    a common father

    Yet all of your sisters
    of "whole seed"
    have never come close
    to the bond
    you enjoy
    with your daddy's
    "outside" daughter

    And now,
    her mother
    has been called home

    this woman

    who
    demonstrated
    more love
    toward you

    than the love you
    still long to receive
    from your own mother


    this woman,

    whom
    your father loved
    and adored
    first, last, and best

    a secret that
    caused so much pain

    but a fact that
    didn't stop the
    agony, the beauty and the
    mystery

    of this journey that
    brought you, in prayer,
    to the bedside of
    "the other woman"

    in the last days of her life

    everything happens
    for a reason

    God will grant
    you peace that no one
    else can understand...

    and in your heart
    you'll forgive the unforgiving

    And God has given you
    more love
    to be strength for
    your sister's house

    Alyce, (c) 2001
