Amidst all the broken pieces…there’s YOU

Rhythm of Love

I’m surrounded by your presence
I feel you like a whisper in my mind
Touching and awakening every nerve
Like a tender kiss
Caressing
Recapturing every memory
In the maze of time
It hurts to breathe
So I let the rhythm of love
Ground me
As I
Hold you a little longer
Love you a little harder
And capture every breath
Your love breathes into me
Until I’m strong enough to breathe on my own

Mother

Change (Happy Mother’s Day)

I wake to the quiet
Of an empty house
It’s been that way since they left
One by one
To follow their dreams
Making mistakes
Taking chances
And heartbreaks
Off to spread their wings
Far from home
To seek adventures
Experience new things
It wasn’t easy to let go
Their independence
Hard
Hard to give
Because mothering
Mothering is how I live
Giving
Protecting
And guiding
It was an adjustment
Watching them bloom
I thought I’d lost my identity
Within the silence
But as their stories are told
Crisp with ripeness
Maturity unfolds
I see their confidence
It’s what I’ve bred
From healing wounds
To tucking them in bed
And now I can do it all again
With the patience of age
I’ll guide the grandkids
Through every stage
They’ll fill the silence
With their smiles
We’ll make new stories
Hold hands
And chase dreams
In their eyes
My kids I’ll see
It couldn’t get any better
Us
Growing older together

Covid

Changing the way we live
To accommodate what we’ve created

Social media
Digital friends
Work from home
Kids unruly
Parents alone
A different norm
With no control

Wash your hands
Wear a mask
Keep your distance

Waiting

I’m just waiting
I know
Something is gonna happen
It’s inevitable and I have no control
What? I’m not sure
But it will happen
And soon
It’s going to turn my world upside down
Again
And I can’t stop it or will it away
So I wait
Anxiously
Hoping against hope
But knowing nothing will change the outcome
That will devastate me

Love

Young Love

You are in my blood
A steady beat
That pulses
And flows
Awake or
Asleep
It’s you that I breathe
The reason I smile
And my heart skips a beat

Silence

In your arms
I’ve found
A place of comfort
With a touch
You soothe me
With an embrace
You warm me
Cocooned
In your love
I’ve found
The wonder of silence

Name

Your name opens wounds
That won’t heal
It’s still so raw
Reliving memories I wish to ignore
