Love blows away

2hands

Once we loved

so passionately,

from far away,

and couldn’t wait to meet.

.

Love breathed in on the wings of the wind.

.

You were the one,

that came along,

to heal me,

and to save me.

.

The future was of love and beginnings.

.

But as the years passed,

and our children appeared.

Realness reared.

Love began to stray.

.

We never agreed,

often at opposite sides,

of the life we share,

although separately told.

.

Love chose another way.

.

No humour.

No smiles.

No touches.

No heartful joy.

.

Love simply gave it away.

.

The wind of change came,

and in it’s cruel wake,

took the love we once had,

and blew it 10,000 miles away.

.

Never to return.

Never to repair.

Never to be there,

on the wings of the wind.

Letter to my Daughter

daughter

.

Daughter of mine,

.

You may never read this letter.

but I hope someday when I am gone,

you will find it, and read it,

and understand our bond.

.

There are things I should tell you.

Why is it always so hard to say?

.

How I admire you, and wonder at your strength.

How you worked so hard at school, and now college.

And never complained, never gave up.

.

How calm and fair you are,

(not sure that came from me!)

How complex and intelligent you are,

without any arrogance.

.

How tall and graceful you became,

Wavy hair so glossy, natural, untamed.

.

How unassuming is your beauty,

not falsely applied.

Your purity of heart shines with the light inside.

.

Song lyrics and harmonies flow from you like a river

You sing like a songbird freed after the Winter.

If only you knew how my heart full with pride

beats in unison with yours when performing on stage.

.

But as I try to praise you,

the words just won’t come.

It’s just not our way,

We just don’t do emotion.

.

So I’m saying this out loud to the stratosphere,

To the moon, to the stars,

To all that will hear.

.

I love you, my daughter.

You are wondrous and unique.

My firstborn, my teacher,

My own masterpiece.

.

You are powerful, you are magical,

Yes, more than you show.

I hope when you read this,

These things you will know.

.

With love always,

.

Your loving Mother x
