So my girls went away on their jolly holidays this morning. I was sad to say goodbye, but I hope they have fun. I’m sure they will. And if I don’t allow myself to wallow in patheticdom then I will too. This evening has been nice, and so I penned this ramble, which I think we could define as poetry….
I hope you enjoy it
Its been a peaceful evening,
Nothing aggravating or severe.
No cause for sadness other than the obvious
And that’s ok, because i’m acting oblivious.
More or less i’m ok, but something less
Than i was this morning, and yet i am not mourning
i’m just moving forward, in my own clumsy
And moronic way.
i’m thinking of them, of course, how couldn’t i?
They are like my left and right eyes.
But they’re away and that’s ok, they’re away having fun
And Its not everyday that we can all play in the sun.
In these breathless moments, when my heart feels hurried,
I need to remind myself that they are just that,
And we belong to each other and we know it.
Sure, I could be sad and sullen,
But then i’d miss this opportunity and it’d pass me by.
The world forever turning, offers moments but a few
To lose yourself in living, how you choose to.
So I’ll steady myself, breathe deep and roll on,
Cooking my chill and singing ukulele songs.
And they’ll be back before I know it,
Safe and blessed for a week of the freshest air.
And I’ll be able to see again, knowing that they’re there.
