My Grief for My Loss

I am sometimes sad
Not only because I lost
Our relationship,
But because of the good things
That were mine taken away.

I lost many of
The treasures of my childhood
Things I wanted to
Keep in my life for pleasure
They brought and continued to.

The question remains
Did you take my things to be
Ruthless or did you
Simply leave them out and let
Them be stolen by strangers?

I may never know
The answers, but I will go
On without worry,
Tears I shed are now over
My grief hidden deep inside.

Shih Tzu mug, I use as a pen holder…


Mug that Mom gave me, holding miscellaneous supplies…


Hippopotamus I painted with art pens…


Feminine teddy bear…

I am grateful:

1.   Mom is a little better today.
2.   Everything works out as God plans.
3.   I am blessed with some intelligence.
4.   Dreams do come true.
5.   Happiness is a choice.

I hope your Tuesday has been rewarding. Don’t forget to spend some time doing something creative. Even if you just record some of your memories, you will have accomplished a something worthwhile.

Leave a comment if you are so inclined. I am very appreciative of all your thoughts.

      Thank you… I am glad you enjoyed the entry. I think our first loves are practice for later. Unfortunately, being laid aside seemed to be a pattern that continued throughout my life.

      Funny how common things make such good pictures at times.

    Ahhh…. the innocence of young love and the excitement it brought to my youth. Years later, after mangled dreams and tortured longings I still look on it with a smile.

    Have a great evening!

      Laura, I would not really want to change a thing after all, but there are some pitfalls I wish I had avoided. Young love stays with us always.

    Sometimes deeply personal things are difficult to share–I receive then as among the most sacred.
