day 24

Do not let loyalty and
         faithfulness forsake
         you;
   bind them around your
         neck,
   write them on the tablet of
         your heart.  Proverbs 3:3

from the jewelry box
on top of the bureau,
      you take the necklace
      crafted long ago by Spirit
      when she was young,
   with beads of hope strung
   on the strands of kinship,
and placing it
around our necks, you
   whisper, 'you'll
   always have my heart.'
