Remember her in your quiet time
just before you drift off
when your smile fades into sleep
and maybe you think back…to when,
and why.
Remember her when you think
pleasant thoughts,
love and laughter and sharing,
butterflies and giggles,
warmth and joy….and some tears
tears from loving and being unable
to fulfill that love….
but she can no longer be,
she can just no longer be…reminded...

Remember…please?
Whether it’s five, seven, and eight
or even ten years from now,
remember she never meant to hurt you.
She truly did not mean to hurt you.

Sometimes a woman has to write herself out
and when the ink is dry and the pen shakes
in her hand, she knows, she just knows that
she can no longer do it.
It is humanly impossible
to continue…..

Sometimes she has to return to a place
where she first began….when others
called her a fool, well,
you see there
is this place, this time,
this moment passed
though it may be, and small
though it may be
and it contains a voice that
could not find
the words….because real love
simply could not
find the words.
Real love is beyond expressing
and so that’s how
and why she will always believe.

But when you read this last line….
dip far
into the well where truth is, ah,
it is at that point
that the final words matter more
than anything
else you ever read in your life.

So, please…. remember that she
really did love you.

she really did love you.  
She always will.

Oftentimes we wonder if we were truly loved when that love is gone.  I think we know in our hearts we were, yet we cannot allow ourselves to admit it.  Why?  The pain of the loss is too great so we cope by trying to fool ourselves into thinking we were never truly loved.  Great write, emily.  You speak words of wisdom.  

All writing comes
by the grace of God.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

emily,
Such painfully true words. You resurrected an ache in my heart from long ago before your poem was even done. Wow, so well written.

Sin isn't fair, but God got even, grace isn't fair either.  larry c
