My Girls...

My Girls.

Oh, Josie, with your dark, dark hair
So soft to touch - so barely there
Now twirl in mind's forgotten halls
You play with light; you bounce the balls
Of make-believe and moonbeam warmth
And every memory lays me bare...

Your eyes are reincarnate now
They sparkle as you take a bow
In curiosity I lay
And watching Isobella play
A smile comes creeping on my lips
Which suddenly remember how...

Impossible to speak my love
For two girls, flighted as the dove
One resting deep in mother's earth
The other living after birth
But my heart runs with both of them
My daughters, made from stars above...

Hello, I found your site by chance and it is helping me get through a difficult time. Your words have shown a way through darkness and your music gently helped make the connection to feelings that must be felt. I know the site isn't really intended for strangers but it's been a gift and so I wanted to thank you. Thank you for your courage and for sharing your experiences. Your poem is so beautiful and poignant.

Thanks again,
Another mom out there

This site is intended for everyone who wants to read it. I'm not at all shy about sharing my feelings - so, you are very welcome here. :) I'm so glad I could help - that's why I write in a public way like this. I'm so sorry that you too are going through a difficult time. XXX
