This was written for me as a Christmas present. I received it from a woman who has become very important to me. Funny enough, she is my mother-in-law. (For those of you who do not know...I am divorced) She wrote this about the last few years of my life, since my divorce.
Jo, I could not completely voice my appreciation for this, for I was near tears. Thankyou for being more then family and more then a friend. I love you dearly.
Emergence to Freedom
Web like strands surrounding her,
a cystalyst of hope.
Uncertainty and harshness bind,
yet somehow she will cope.
Slowly, ever growing through,
the shell of love left weak.
She finds herself, emerging with
a better life to seek.
She spreads her wings and tests the air,
She's found herself, with wings of gold,
'Cause butterflies are free.
In my life, I am truely blest with people who love me. Marilyn Harrison.
