Letting Go

Time is coming

You will be leaving

Forging ahead

A life I cannot live

Left behind


Hiding frightened tears

Behind sunny smile

Words of love


Off you go

Do not look back

I will always be here

Holding the door open

Staring down beaten road



Plume of dust

Tells me

You are on your way home.





Fine lines grace gallant forehead

Smiles have etched

Deeper lines than despair



Your life

All I wished it could be.

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
