You are indelible-

Years since we spoke;

Yet I miss you so deeply.

Bitterness dissipated;

I would see you again.

I can slip into yesterday

Like an old school dress;

Ill-fitting, faded-

Yet comforting;

Short reveries from

An unrepeatable time.

You decided not to grow old

With your loyal chum;

How you stabbed my heart,

Yet helped me

All on one day.

My dream-world shattered;

I sought the truth.

Suddenly ties severed-

The magic of youth disappeared.

Careless words magnified the gaping wound;

I hated that you were so hard to release.

I hoped my name would later,

Come to your lips

As yours does to mine,

This very day;

I can only hope that these years

Weren’t in vain…

And that I may have been

I am a wife and a mother of two beautiful and spirited young children, living in Australia. I am a loving, sensitive soul, drawn to people from all walks of life. Unashamedly, I am a follower of Christ; He is my daily hope and inspiration- the reason that I live and the one I give the glory to. I enjoy dabbling in a range of hobbies including writing, playing piano, singing, gardening, cooking craft and nature walks. Life has presented many challenges to me but always, I find that God's power is made perfect in my weakness. He has impressed upon me to share my experiences to encourage and inspire others. Every day is a page in the story He is writing.
