Home Soon

it was though just yesterday
when I used to hold your tiny hands
as we walked  down the stairs
oh, how you confidently
let go, while others cried in despair
for not wanting to

as days became weeks
and weeks became months
I barely noticed how years flew by
‘cos every moment with you
is a loving moment
of memories to keep
of how our world used to be
until the last days of my life

I never leave you behind
never alone
for you, I will adjust my world
reorganize my life
and dream the dreams
you dream

but my child,
our world has changed
and I have to leave you alone
my heart bleeds
and I am lost
lost of words

remember your dream is my dream
and your hope is my hope
for that, I will be home
soon…

    I’ve read your poem here 3 times Mich….. and each time my thoughts have become clearer, and also dreamier….. a gloriously challenging piece, and I’m visualising my own stairway to heaven, with my angel looking over me,… standing there in the centre of my dreams….. 💛💙🌏🌏

    The parent child relationship described so well! Too often people get it backwards – the parent trying to make the children take on the parent’s dreams. But that never goes well – instead if the parents buy into the child’s dreams magic happens!

      Thank you so much Val for your lovely comment..
      And i agree, parents should support the dreams of their children not the other way around. Sometimes too, some parents who are failures on some aspects tend to put the burden on so called “doing it because their parents failed”..and that could be really devastating

  21. AW. Crying here. Your beautiful poem touches my heart, and soul, deeply, SweetMich!
    I hope you WILL be reunited soon. I know you and your daughters hope for that, too.

    I know the feeling of missing my kids, too, and not getting to see them and not sure when we will be able to get together again…might be 2021. ??? 😦

    Keep the hope and faith! 🙂 We are grateful to have phones, texts, Skype, Zoom, FaceTime, social media, etc. All good ways to keep in touch! 🙂

      thank you Gina.. i was thinking of them when they were little girls and oh, how time flies by so fast so to say. i will not forget the day sent each one of them for their first day of school, while others were really crying, they were very confident to let go of my hands and graciously asked me to live. i knew then, that i am raising a confident yet grounded children.. true enough because even after so long they remained confident, strong and yet very gracious young adults.

    I remember my adult sons as children. Thinking I could hope to make their dreams come true.
    How lucky we are that we can dream of reunions… some are less fortunate in that regard.

    There always seems to be some news of someone with an illness that cannot be stopped. Or rather the only way for such an end is for the body to stop. Some stop fighting. Others even when the chances are slim will try anything for a few more precious moments. May we all have the moments we need.
