~ A poem written by Karen Stuchlik and dedicated to her mother Cindy Hiner

Open Arms

I can feel what's not said.
I listen to what's not understood.
I can feel 'looks' as people walk by.
I wonder how it can be?
Imprisoned ... in this body of mine.
My soul, my spirit is here.
I can't feel so much more.
Your love with understanding

of what is unknown to me.

I wonder how can it be?
'Love' showed me I'm not imprisoned.
The love with you, I feel.
Now I know I'm not alone.
I can see how it can be.
Open Arms, to me, opens my world.
I see now it’s to be unknown.
You opened your heart to me.
Now I have the greatest view
because ... God sent me, to you!

I wish ...  everyone had someone like you.
My angel sent from God through Open Arms.

~ Karen Stuchlik
