Josette Marie Louise Lager
I WAS THERE
I was there in the midst of the battle
in the midst of the storm
In all of its fury.
I kept you from harm.
Through the eons of time
I hid you in the shadow of my wings
in my secret place in my pavilion.
If it wasn’t a soldier it was a helpless child
a forgotten senior an abused wife
a homeless crying in the night
and all dressed up and nowhere to go.
