Thanks for listening

Thanks for hearing

What I had to say.

Thanks for not being angry.

Thanks for not standing

In my Way.

I gave you a second chance

After the reality

Kept you shaking.

But I could not

Handle the stress

After all we went through,

The memories not forsaken.

I have learned that everything

Has its own time and place.

I anticipate the day I have

This new space.

Setbacks, Bills, No Vacation

From Work or Ills.

Just like my Mama said,

"You can't put the

Cart in front of the Horse."

It takes time to plan

This transition

Of Course.

But even if you are willing to stay,

Even if you're not running away,

I suppose an act of kindness

You can show

Is to hold

The door open

When I finally go.

      CM your hub saddens me. I had to go back and read all 3. I know that you have endeavored to make a go of your marriage and this has not been an easy decision. I have walked down that path and I will pray for you that you will find peace with each step you take. Should you need an ear from someone who understands just send me a message! Bless you dear girl!

      CMCastro-This is sad but strong. I love the music of Michael Bolton and it goes well with your poem. Nice
