TIME HEALS

Updated on February 28, 2015

Like a two-winged creature heading south

   A jet with unlimited fuel

   Time has flown

   Healing memories that were so cruel.

Yet . . .

Some recollections remain so clear

   Causing a tremendous amount of fear

   The awful things that took place

   I just can’t bare to see your face.

Still looking over my shoulder

   Not as often today

   Gaining wisdom as I get older

   Fading thoughts along the way.

Craving answers from you

   Through a nightmare here and there

   I don’t respond

   I wouldn’t dare.

Time goes on healing

   And I have a feeling

   That because you are no longer near

   I will celebrate every new year.

      Hi Sharyn! Every time I read your words, I feel as if I could have written them because, I am certain, we have shared some very similar circumstances and experiences...and, I'm betting, have dealt w/them in very similar ways. Always intriguing and helpful to read our wise words of self healing and moving on. You go girl!!!!! Thank you. UP...YUP!! Useful, Awesome!!

      This is bittersweet. Such is life. We are all healing from something. Me, a horrific car wreck in Nashville. Blessings.
