Yesterday the ache was so strong
A wave of loneliness so forceful that it seemed to drown me with pain and sorrow
Alone in this world with only the echos of my existence being noticed by those around me
Now, for the moment, the agony is gone
Like a heavy blanket of sadness being lifted from my grieving soul
My heart sees the glittering gold of hope ahead
My lungs, so tired from the constant sobbing, gasp in bits of fresh air
A glimpse of new life glimmer in my mind’s eye as I look forward through the fog of grief that floats before me
Though I still see the desolate road of heartache ahead
I can now see the rainbow that signals life is still here
My heart still beats
My breathe still gives rhythm to the nature around me
My eyes see the smiles of my children
I will cling to this moment within me
In hopes it will get me through the heavy wall of pain
I will once again feel tomorrow

Oh my goodness.
I had no idea it was still this way for you.
Have just read the Christmas post and seen the photo.
I’m so sorry that fate deals out these hands to others who walk among us.

Thank you for your kindness and concern. I wrote this awhile ago and posted it two years ago when my blog was geared more to grief. I definitely have had my hard days, but not in the last few years. Life is good. 😊
