I have let some blood this morning. Let go some poison. And the greatest of these is love.

 

 

 

 

 
 
First,
know that
I don’t regret it.
Every moment
I spent with you,
Inside and out,
enriched my spirit
and my learning self.
I encouraged
you to go.
I made you go.
It was truly best
for you.
but…
when you turned away
as I knew you would,
a huge chunk
of my soul,
so shocked
and appalled,
went with you.
I had not expected the
barbaric
wrenching of
my essence
with every step
you were taken.
Now,
after some large
amount of long
countless days
and longer nights
that have
added up to
decades
I know,
have known, that
I will get it back,
I know I will.
I am strong.
I also know
that no matter
what I try to fill
this void with
over
and
over
it does not matter
or
for how many years.
I am
forever changed.
But I have work to do,
as I have ever since.
The fortification and
rebuilding
of my core are
loose ends I retie
every day,
like strings
flying in the breeze...
tickling the back
of my mind.
I will never
forget you,
Maggie Mae.
Your birth mother
hopes and prays
that you are okay
and that God
has blessed you
in every way.
