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.
Tim

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))
