private poet


Who will I be 

Now that I am on my own?

What will I do with my life

Now that I am alone?

Will I stay single?

Will I find a mate?

Will I find courage to love again?

Will I leave it too late?

When the bitter aftermath of your loss is over

Will I wake afresh to see the sun?

Will my heart lift and sing again with

The prospect of of a new day just begun?

Will I dance and laugh again

Or set off to see all things new?

Explore exotic place and

Do it all for you

I need to find a new purpose 

Now that I am no longer your wife

Find new ways to fill my time

Re-invent my life

With you as my silent guardian

In my mind, still at my side

Steering me so gently

My true forever guide.
