Some of Us Must Continue to Walk Alone, A Poem

I have walked these paths before
On summer mornings
On winter evenings
In the warmth of the shining sun
And in the cold under a moonlit sky.
This is my path
My way home
But I have never had
To walk it alone.
I have counted the moments
Of your absence
Felt them along my veins
And the tears I have cried
Seem not enough –
But you shall never return.
Through loss,
I understand your permanence
In the silent moments,
You etched yourself upon my soul
And in the laughter, the smiles, and the tears
You have paraded the beauty of life at my feet.
“All this is for you,” you said.
And I loved you willingly and openly
But time proves a harsh passage
And some, must continue
To walk alone.

    You have such a way with words Sumyanna and truly as sad and harsh as this may be how you’ve strung your feelings out here for us all to read is just so beautiful. ❤

          Yes, it definitely is. School has been unusually busy these past few weeks and I have been snowed under helping two kiddos learn 🙂 Still alive and hoping to get back into posting and reading again. Hugs! And hope to read more of you soon. Man, that will keep me busy but I know I will enjoy every minute 🙂

            I will (promise) 🙂 Yes, I am not going to go away. I have realized that sometimes I will be a bit busy, but this is the way I take care of myself. I have to make sure to make some time for what I enjoy as well. Thank you so much (bunches of hugs sent your way).

      I bet you never thought I’d be quiet Seema 🙂 Not by choice – just things have been hectic. So sorry I haven’t approved your comments in a while. Hoping to get back into the swing of things and don’t ever forget that I miss you too! Hope you are doing well.

          It is not always like that – at least, I hope not. I am enjoying our together time. I get to spend time teaching my little one to read while he sits on my lap. My next older child is learning the finer skills of writing. She is actually quite good at it and really enjoys writing, so it is a fun job to have 🙂 Still think about you though – you’ve become part of the family.
