U.S.A. I Love You!

The winter has ended and spring has arrived.
The jonquils bloom yellow in leaves of green.
They paint the courtyard in colors alive.
This house is empty and yet, it’s serene.
It’s filled with memories, happy and sad.
Kids played Red Rover and Hide and Go Seek.
A stay-at-home mom and a hard-working dad.
They prayed together each day of the week.
In spring of their lives, many joys came their way.
And sadness, too, changed their laughter to tears,
but they counted their blessings each night and day.
They held tight to their faith down through the years.
When winter brought sorrow and things went wrong,
they rejoiced in singing their nation’s song.
