Decisions

Decisions flying
around in space
one's I never
thought
to think again.
Out of the blue
the talk is there
question is
do I go there
again,
do I start
over again
from scratch?
I dreamed
for so
many years
for one more
precious gift
of love,
but the door
was locked
no key
would,
or could
open it,
so I accepted
and felt blessed
with what I had.
Now I'm left
to ponder
if the dream
from years ago
could still
be a dream
for the future.

Hi Lost Dreamer,

The keys to your heart and soul nobody holds but you, and dreams never die unless you choose, even if it is the same dream but a different soul to share them with. Love your poem, thankyou for sharing it.

Cerenity-1:Thanks for reading and enjoying, you may not have understood this poem, the door that was locked was the baby door, and now somehow a key appeared that fits and can unlock it, but I'm not sure I want to go through that door now that our two we already have are grown up.

A dream is always a dream - lest forgotten altogether me thinks.  Beautiful poem, Gloria.

Choices and decisions.....pretty much what life's about.  "The old dreams were good dreams, maybe they never happened, but they were still good dreams". (from Bridges of Madison County).
Keep the Dream.  Nice write.

I faced a similar decision 11 years ago when I remarried. I so desperately wanted another child, especially by my new husband, but it never happened. If there are new ways to overcome infertility, I'd say go for it! You are still young enough. Great poem, Gloria!

Following your heart is the answer of choice, Gloria - but in reality - it's a tough decision, isn't it?... Nice poem..

Well you know that having kids isn't an easy task. If you're in a position where things are stable, then I suggest pray about it. God guide your heart and decisions my friend. I would say go for it!
Let us know what you decide won't you?
