My lost children

A Different Set of Dreams

I held you as you breathed
watching your body taste everything.
All the fears you had
wrapped in a blanket,
you took comfort
in the sound of my beating heart.

I held you close, understanding
in that moment. Everything I had become
would walk in a different pair of shoes
a different set of dreams.

I sat at the table
with lawyers and legal papers.
Anger hid in the words of compromise.

Note: this is yet unfinished just like the relationship I have with my children.

Emotions of this kind we can't do anything but write about them. Sometimes we all must bare the most unthinkable things. ((I am truly sorry))

divorce is definitley unsettling and painful, especially how it relects upon the relationship of our children... compromise may be the only solution...
