A Queen

We bought brown suede boots
durable and rugged.
We bought the boots 
to wear them to the field 
when we ran with our dog.
She was a puppy then
running with joyful abandon
chasing shadows
and her tail.
I lost myself in her gaze,
she laid glued to me
leaving no room for anyone else.
She was graceful as if
she knew that she was
a queen in another life,
and I was her servant. 
He misses her,
and he misses the young
girl I used to be. 

Join us at where we share our thoughts and our hearts.

When I am gone,
 I want to dwell in your dreams
like a fluttering butterfly
on your skin.
Kiss your eyelids as you sleep
and embrace you with my wings.
when I am gone I will dance with you
through all the continents,
we will
 hopscotch through the stars
as we climb into
 each others arms.
When I am gone
I'll leave my scent on your pillow
while the violins play
and you drink poems for breakfast
in a tall cup
knowing you were loved.

It's always been difficult for me to leave myself open and vulnerable even though in my poetry I do, in my daily life it's not always easy to do. The last few weeks were filled with questions and uncertainties. I was tackling some health issues that are still unresolved. A good friend texted me the other day to ask how I was doing. I answered optimistic and with gratitude for the improvement that I have experienced so far. Later I reflected and I realized how hard it is for me to accept that all this worry and fear has left me depressed. I have not had patience to write, to read, to visit my friends on their blogs. I try to assure everyone around me that I am fine because I don't want to burden them. As a mother, wife, friend, I have always tried to comfort everyone. I think I have to accept the way I feel and allow them to comfort me.
