my ex husband was married yesterday, 40 years after our marriage. It has been a bittersweet weekend for me.


by Amber "V" Moonstone


Forty years ago,
you were mine,
and I was yours.
That was the past.

Today, I embrace
the freedom that
my past has given me
Peace, love and lightness.

I do not weep 
nor, do I  dwell
in the darkness
that once surrounded my life.

I do embrace the light,
I embrace love,
and most of all
I embrace Peace.

Bittersweet memories
stir my soul today,
another lifetime
flashes before my eyes.

I shed tears of letting go
for the last time,
you are now another person's
husband, and I still,  your first wife.

I know you better than anyone,
I loved you longer than anyone,
now I bid you farewell
and wish you peace, love, and lightness.


Farewell (c) Amber "V" Moonstone

As always, writing will help you to accomplish it. I think you were wise to write this poem. We can't erase memories, but we can put them in their place and move on.
Nicely written farewell--keep looking to the future.

My ex-wife got engaged a month ago.
She called me to tell me about it...perhaps...because...
Who else cares about her?
But freedom is a never ending discovery.
Peace- deep peace.

Nope. You do not bid him farewell. He is still in your heart. I am sorry if what I said offends you, but your poem proved this truth, Amber.
