Poem: The Ones We Love


The Ones We Love

The years have gone so quickly.
Unseeing - unaware-
we stood in our own ignorance,
blind to what was there.

Basking in the moment,
of love's security;
not noticing the changes
we now so plainly see.

We thought because we loved them
and always let them know -
that fact would help in smoothing
the ways they chose to go.

They’re flung into life’s fickleness,
not tethered anymore.
Each day we see they’ve drifted
much farther than before.

We fight this helpless feeling...
no longer can deny…
that we can’t help them anymore,
no matter how we try.

Junie - I'm sitting here with tears rolling down my face. So true, so very, very true. (((hugs)))

Take care.

Sorry that it made you teary...but it is true to some degree with all of us- or most of us any way!
