As Hard as it is I have to say Goodbye

The absence is felt
gaping
hole in my heart;
where once you resided.
Cut free
wrenched from my circle
my life
dimmer
for lack of you in it.
I have tried.
I have given space.
I have given time.
The divide is ever greater
and I ache
for the loss of a friend.
Someone who never judged.
Who always encouraged.
Who never let me falter.
And though the promise is in the air
I know
it won’t be kept
it cannot be kept
and my heart breaks
for I love you.
Adopted you.
You are family.
And sometimes
as in all families
I must learn to let go.

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
