Poem: Wrapped In Worries

.

Wrapped In Worries

by June Nash

.

Woke up today

wrapped in you

Your problems, hurts

and pains too

I do not mind

truly don’t

But I can’t help

it’s not won’t

.

You’re wrapped up in 

others too

Their needs, deeds, and 

want to dos

Time to think now

of yourself

Before you waste 

your good health

.

It’s not the time 

that is spent

That makes me feel 

late on rent

It’s the worry 

I embrace

Watching the qualms

that you face

.

You worry too

fret and cry

About those who 

never try

Those who let you 

be their crutch

They will leave you 

without much

.

So I’ll lend to you

caring ears

Even share in

salty tears

I won’t take your 

worries though

Cannot let you 

steal my glow

Poem: Holey Sock

Holey Sock

by June Nash

I’ve a hole in my sock though no one can see

Let’s keep it a secret between you and me

My foot, it rubs against the side of my shoe

Causing a blister, I don’t know what to do

I have no more money to by a new pair

Nor have I more mended pairs which I can wear

Just leave me alone, let me be by myself

I’ll wait all alone for the good fairy elf

He’ll repair my poor sock, or bring me some new

Until he comes knocking I’ll sit here and stew

Poem: Seamstress

Seamstress

by June Nash

.

Seamstress sits in chair

Other’s clothes repair

While dressed in old rags

Of good deeds she brags

.

It tears at her heart

When they fall apart

Her family and friends

Their ailments must mend

.

Takes thread from her soul

To make others whole

Creating a run

In own fabric spun

.

Takes no time to darn

Repairing the harm

Stays a wee bit frayed

Her peace for theirs trade

.

Until a mere rag

Across own rips sag

Seamstress sits in chair

Other’s woes repair
