The Old Purple Shirt

for D. W.


This old purple shirt’s

for working and play

except some days

when it’s a lens

to bygone times,

times of joy

but grief as well,

internal pain not befitting

royal colors,

and yet despite it all

that time has past

and the grace of God

remained, remains, will still remain

and I know one day

your shirt may be different

but it’ll still

be purple too

    1. Thanks! I have no idea what will be worn in heaven but I know we can look forward to being there. I wote this for someone to remind them there was hope now, too, in the Creator of heaven and earth.

      Hope you have a good week!
