As Flame Turns To Ash

A Poem by Aspiring Angel

Written for my daughter Kimberly, who is now a single Mommy, but still has ties to break.

Within the flames of what
Are my yesterdays
I search for the answers
To what is to be my life

I am the same
As I have always been
And yet ...

I am so different

I never dreamed I could
So completely love
When I see Joseph's face before me
I am told that the sparkle
Returns to my eyes

He is my world
He is my sunshine

So caught up am I
In the
What should I do's

Answers drifting within my heart
And yet ...
They still cannot be plainly seen

I no longer know if I love
The hurt is getting to where
I can no longer feel the pain

In these moments of
Quiet reflection
I watch the flames
As they turn to ash

I hear whispers of a better
Life for myself and for Joseph

But still too ...
Is the one to be left behind

If you are to run across this
one day my Kimberly,
please know I understand
the confusion you are going
through right now.

I love you,

My daughter is now just entering the 16+ years. I am holding my breath and praying for the best. I love the work here and even more the purpose and intent of it. Good Work.
