Wednesday Writing Prompt Challenge… HOME

This is my story. My truth. I miss him.

It’s said you can’t go home again

How true that is for me

Cause home wasn’t a place

Home wasn’t a building

Home was You.

I resided in your heart

Your soul my blanket

When I close my eyes

I imagine my head

Still pillowed on your chest

I can still feel you……

In my dreams I can always go home…..

Friday’s Daily Prompt…TEARS

I’ve chosen to share a poem I wrote 5 months after my husband passed away. I’m grateful to be here almost 6 years later, not so paralyzed by that pain and grief. I’ve still sadness in my heart as I miss him so very much, and grief still visits occasionally, but I’ve learned to not hide the tears when they need to come.

TEARS 💧

Happy New Years Eve 🎇

The hands of time

Tick tocking the moments away.

Soon,

The final chapter

Of this book will be written,

The last period put in place.

And the book will close.

Reflection will follow.

There were stormy seas

That pounded and tried to break me.

There were times of peaceful calm,

When all seemed right.

What I have found

On this journey,

Is that my life

Is/was somewhere in the middle.

The rough seas help make me stronger.

The calm revitalizes.

In the middle, I find a cohesiveness

That makes my life’s journey

Explicitly my own.

The book is closed now.

A new one ready to be written.

While I hold the pencil ( I like to have the ability to erase)

God will guide my hand

and help me turn the page,

Let the journey continue.
