"The Sisters Garden"

What does it mean to each of us
This Garden where friends meet?
What do we hope to achieve here
Among the girls we meet?
~
What should be our qualities,
Of love, support and such?
How different our days can be
With friendship’s tender touch!
~
The things that touch my heart
Are those when others care ~
Who say to me when days are rough ~
Remember I am there.
~
We come from many places
Across a trouble world
How much we all would like to see
Freedom’s flag unfurled.
~
Loving, caring kind and true,
These are things we should be.
Accepting without judging
These sisters we cannot see.
~
It must not matter what our creed,
Nor the colour of our skin
What matters most of all
Is the love which lives within.
~
Times of fear when weather storms
Or fires rage near our door,
There is always a sister ready to say
When you can – please tell us more.
~
Let us know that you are safe,
That your children are now asleep
We can be caring “Angels”
And another watch will keep.
~
We share laughter and tears,
Hopes and delights,
Photographs and achievements
Weddings and sad, sad nights.
~
Our religious differences put aside
We should be able to see
That heart to heart and in our thoughts
We truly can be free.
~
Acceptance, tolerance and understanding,
Kindness and love are all part
Of the care and the tenderness which lives
In a WOSIB woman’s heart.
