one day

May 3, 2014 at 6:26 pm 16 comments

i stand here with empty hands,

never warm

and

always alone.

they used to hold two little ones,

now grown up

and

on their own.

i stand here with an open heart,

never wanted

and

always alone.

wondering why

it has never been enough.

instead,

time and tears

have turned it stone.

i stand here with a crowded mind,

never quiet

but

a resounding, incongruous drone.

oh

how i wish for the day

when silence prevails,

i am at peace

and

no more –

alone

      Thank you. I was telling someone the other day that when I was asked to approve a DNR order – do not resuscitate order for my mom when she was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer, I asked my mother what I should. I had her power of attorney, being an only child and my father was too drunk out of his mind to make any decision. She quite simply looked at me and said she just wants peace. “I want to be in peace”. That has stuck with me ever since I heard her say it. I want it too.

        What a difficult conversation though I can understand the desire for peace.

    I often feel this way as well. Singular in a world of pairs, but I know and trust that my Eternal Flame is there, amidst the masses, and Time is just waiting until we are both in the perfect place.

    Blessings my friend, of assurance and peace ~
