An Epiphany

An Epiphany

A Poem by dawn aulis

This poem is about my teenage daughter and our struggle to find our way through her becoming an adult, and my having to let her go....



An epiphany

A sign, a break

Some clarity.

I thought I’d lost

All I gave,

My heart, my soul

To the one I  gave.

Who meant the most

Of all my gifts,

I thought was gone,

An awesome rift.

To break a heart,

And leave me broke

I gave my all,

But at the end I choked.

Then a surprise

An epiphany,

You say you found,

A wondrous gift,

Some common ground.

Thank you lord,

For I am blessed.

Found your way back,

We passed a test.

I love you more,

Then you could know,

I hope you see,

I love you so.

My sweet girl,

Is still in there.


The smile and hair.

She still lives,

In your soul,

Keep her there,

As you grow.

Life is long

When you are grown,

Enjoy each day,

Make it your own.

My heart soars,

Just at the thought,

That you understand,

My tight spot.

I’d love to say,

I’d let you go,

But my heart would break,

I love you so.

I will try,

If you do the same,

We’ll find our way,

In life’s game.
