“I hate writing poetry—dread it, actually,” writes Lee. “As a sixth-grade teacher, I always hated our unit on poetry. And then, all of the sudden, while on a train to New York City, something magical happened: I wrote a poem for a dear friend’s wedding. It just came to me, and I started typing. I loved it instantly, and when I eventually gave it to her, she did too.
“I thought it was a fluke, a one-time thing. Then, one Saturday morning I was asked to write something for another wedding. As I was taking notes about the couple, I began to form the poem in my head. I put the phone down and ran to my computer to type.
“After I finished that poem, another one came to me. Then another one. Then another one. And so on. I decided to take on a challenge of writing sixty poems in sixty days. I completed it, finishing the poems well within the sixty-day time frame.
“Writing these poems is what I turned to when I was seeking something—solace, gratitude, inspiration, and love. I divided this book into those four sections for that reason. My hope is that whatever you may be seeking, you will find a source of comfort through these poems, as I have.”
