Reading the Signs of Love

Do you ever get a "sign"?
Maybe from someone you loved and lost?
I believe, and I get them.

Yesterday I was sitting in front of my new windows
to the world, seeing the white snow covering everything
like a perfect white blanket.
'All this needs to be perfect,' I said,
'Is a red cardinal amidst all of this white.'


"Dad?", I asked my father, who has been gone for many
years, but is missed every day,
"Hi, Dad. Could you send me a bright red cardinal
to say hi to me?"

A short time later, still while I sat in the white windows,
I looked up and saw it.

There was a beautiful red cardinal.
He made sure I saw him,
Then looked my way, and flew.

But he'll always be nearby.

Thanks, Dad.
Happy Valentine's Day to you, too.♥
