Near You

You have pushed me
pulled me
moved me from the staid
to the exciting.
my head thrown back
hair tossed by the wind
I wrap my legs around your waist
my screams of delight
echo in your ear.
Never have I felt so alive
never so connected
as I do with you.
Those who do not understand
watch as we speed by
uncertain what to say.
all this and more
is felt when I am near you.
Sept. 8/18

Author: Jay-lyn Doerksen

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom
