I Thought Of You Today

By Carol Ilbery

While driving home, I saw a beautiful rainbow

Just peeking from the clouds as the rain eased up

I thought of you as I received your message

Your message of love and promises not forgotten.


While driving to work, I heard a song

Playing nice and clear, soft and gentle and full of passion

I thought of you as I received your message

Your message of grace and tomorrows yet to come.


While walking to the mailbox, I smelled your rose

Delicate and soft, the scent came peacefully to my nose

I thought of you, of your brow as I carelessly pulled at the stem

And the thorn pricked my finger as I pulled it close to smell it’s fragrance.


I thought of you and your selfless sacrifice as my finger,

Pricked only once by my action bled slightly.

I thought of you as I remembered the thorns pricking your brow, your head

As you lovingly gave your all so that I…so that we might live.
