As we go through this life, people come and go. Some stay for but a moment, and others stay for varying lengths of time. Some, though their time in our life be brief, leave a lasting impression on our hearts and lives.
With the advent of the Internet and social media, the phenomenon has taken on a whole new dimension. People touch our lives, and we touch their lives, when in many cases we will never actually see or touch them.
Kathryn Daugherty—a novelist—is one such person. We’ve never met, but last September she asked my permission to include my poem, Pennies From Heaven, in her novel, A Case of Hearts. Of course, I said yes, as I was thrilled someone would want to include one of my poems in their book.
This past summer, Kathryn contacted me again; she was preparing to publish a second novel, She Promised Her Heart, and wanted to know if I could write a poem to put in the book! How cool is that? Well, again, I was thrilled, and penned what I think is a pretty good poem that compliments the story she tells in her new novel. I hope you like the poem, and I hope you’ll buy a copy of She Promised Her Heart; I think it’s going to be best seller!
