It Feels Like Magic


 
Images floating,
 colorful hot air balloons,
baby teeth with gaps.
Fragments of life,
holiday dinners,
silver candlesticks,
etched crystal,
the past on the screen.
Images I have forgotten
and ones I remember.
A lifetime of love,
and grace dancing in front of me.
He bought me the machine to
convert the old taped memories
into Cd's.
New Years eve,
he calls at nine thirty.
He was bombarded with sick people
to care for.
He is on his way home
and I feel guilty for having
sent a text and a photograph
of our delicious meal.
He is hungry and I feel
sad he is going home to a frozen dinner.
This is his life and he is a man,
I am no longer his lighthouse
or his world,
but he will always be mine.
Husband fell asleep,
my little one joins me on the couch.
We watch Rock N Roll New Year's Eve,
as we giggle.
Later I climb into bed,
husband opens his eyes,
and gives me a kiss,
it feels like magic.

  2. I hear you Ayala. I am just entering the letting go, she's a woman (cause at almost nineteen, she isn't quite)... but when she's not here she may as well be... and will always remain mine in my heart. And all of this, each moment is as it is meant to be. Love to you on this first night of the new year!

  30. Priceless! A mother's love so beautifully expressed through your words:

    am no longer his lighthouse
    or his world,
    but he will always be mine.

    We watched the ball drop, too. Sounds like you and your husband have a special enduring love, too.
