Poetry from the Women of Abby’s

Poetry from the Women of Abby’s

When we were friendless you befriended us,
When we were hungry you offered us food,
When we were sick you had compassion,
When we were homeless you invited us in,
So with deep gratitude,
We thank you for bearing with us,
We thank you for caring about us,
We thank you for sharing with us.
With sincere sisterly love,
Abby’s Darlings!

This poem was written by a group of the women living at Abby’s House and read to the staff at our Valentine’s Day luncheon in 2011.
