A great poem by Maggie
We lived a lifetime
Old souls fit together
Like the long-worn sweater
Or constant companion
Who would guess
I should be the one
Or that there would be a time
When I would
Gaze into a future
Where summer days were left behind
Fell upon my head
Leaving cold silver strands
To grow and spread.
All those morning suns we woke
All those dreams we formed and spoke
All those years we stood beside
All those decades of turning tides
I keep the tale we wrote
And write it
Every day again
To fill my heart with longing
And the warmth of
My empty pain
I smile at the remnants
That tell me little moments
All brought together
Scream the life we sculpted
It is the inherent sorrow
Of the joy of being two
That one must leave the other
Before their story was through.
All those days were filled with us
All those nights we turned and touched
All those times your eyes read mine
All those moments we built in time
And so I keep our story
Close upon my mind
Because I was appointed
As the one left behind.
Isn't that great! Maggie posts a poem every Friday that she has written on her blog and they are good. This one is especially poignant to me due to the fact that I find myself in that same position. Thank you, Maggie.
Hope your sale does well today. Don't buy too much or you'll have to declutter again. ;D
Thanks for your well wishes for Jessica, Jason and Peanut. I really appreciate it. :-)
Yes, the water in my photos is dirty because we had a big rain day before yesterday and the runoff makes the water brown. It usually makes for some good catfishing, but not yesterday.
Have a great weekend, Dick, and give Huggy some lovin' for me. :-)
I see you were in Leavenwoth, we went through there a few days ago, nice place, after visiting gail in Auburn, drove back to Canada in the rain right past you and Mt Vernon.
We had a nice few days away, now we head home to Oliver from Maple Ridge
May your memories keep you content with a past well lived and loved.
Thanks for sharing Maggie's words.
