I Have Often Told You Stories

I Have Often Told You Stories


I have often told you stories


I have often told you stories

Of white doves when they fly

Gentle feathered touches

Quiet whispers, a tender hello

Wings that hug and hold

When they frolic in circles round

Imminent to share new hope

Leaving a thoughtful prayer.


Today I need to tell you another

How a visit, just an ordinary call

Became shared voices and memories

Laughter, constant smiles

Sharing hopes and dreams

Floating in and out, round and round

A story I’ll often tell, over and over

But only, if you want to hear.




Emotional and expressive portrait. The white doves are symbols of comfort in a time of need.

The certificate of authenticity will be signed by Arie Coetzee.
