Author: Barbara Goodhew


Things that are taken away fast,
sometimes are returned just as fast.
I've been wishing for years to not let this last.

Nothing, thought I was being ignored, so just accepted my fate.
Just when I was feeling no hope, no more waiting.

In just a few hours things change for the best.
I guess I passed past the test.
That's one test I'm glad I didn't fail.
