Taken For Granted

Taken For Granted

A Poem by Melissa Kesead
"

I wrote this while my husband was going through cancer therapy. It's part of my book Setting The Furies Free

"

Looking at my life

I’ve taken you for granted

Examining all the love an

All the seeds you’ve planted

 

Selfishly I’ve taken from you

All you’ve had to give

And given none of myself

Kind of like a sieve

 

Your tenderness and joy

I gobble greedily

Reveling in your kindness

I’ve no humility

 

“Sorry” doesn’t cut it

“Forgive me” seems trite

“I love you” is a given

But doesn’t have much bite

 

My eyes have fluttered open

No longer do I cringe

Change I am embracing

No further on the fringe

 

My heart is brimming over

My eyes are seeking yours

My ears are fully open

I’ve unlocked all my doors

 

No more stuck in sorrow

Or hindered by the pain

Unburdened by the hopeless

I’ve got too much to gain

 

Bring me close and hold me

I finally am free

My heart is yours forever

Until eternity

"o more stuck in sorrow
Or hindered by the pain
Unburdened by the hopeless
I’ve got too much to gain"
The above lines. Great wisdom learned and thank you Melissa for sharing the amazing poetry.
