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.

      I'm healing Sharon. I'm all scabbed up, but I'll be alright in a decade or two. God bless you!

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