Where I Belong

Where I Belong

A Poem by Helen Woodward

For my Husband...Allan

Where I Belong

My heart...ever tattered

Misses you

My Soul...still in tact

Trusts my Lord

To lift me gently...as he did with you

And place me where I belong

Back in your arms

Safe...cared about and loved unconditionally

I look to the Sunshine and my hope is restored

And ignore the dark clouds

That try to keep me bound

To nothing in particular

All that was beautiful in my dreams

No longer exists

There is no joy where there is no you

I don't wonder if you're happy

Because I know you are

My need to tell you of my life since you...

Is strong and ever present

In a mind that is half full of disappointment

And half void due to my will

I know...

I am aware...

That I live because I have to

And love because I need to

Emptiness unseen...

Trauma not noticed...

Yet love for you is constantly refreshed

These thoughts arise from a living soul

That whispers daily to my dying heart...

Be still...all will be well.

'Back in your arms - Safe...cared about and loved unconditionally'

Even in absolute despair you wrote and write so very beautifully, Helen. I know this will seem crass and insensitive but there's a time when one realises that the person we miss so very desperately would want, would near demand - that we find happiness in life, day by week by .. time.

I hurts when we lose someone so close to us.. You want to be with them, know you can't but wish they are happy where they are.. I feel your heart in this... I know the pain too. Hugs n Love

At times simply living is hard work. People around you are non-responsive and you feel like throwing in the towel. I have read and reviewed many on-line writers who have felt this way.. more..
