I Will Leave You One Day

This Monday’s Poem of the Week is dedicated to Valerie, a dear friend who lost her soul mate after fifty two years. It’s a tragedy we all must deal with as survivors of loss sooner or later in life.

 I Will Leave You One Day

I will leave you one day,

or you me,

with a breath half-taken

our journey together will end.

Perhaps I’ll be ready for that day,

when it arrives,

when both our lives

entwined for so long

are separated by that last breath –

and either you, or I, release the other

unto death.

Yes, perhaps, I’ll be ready for that day,

that final sigh,

if, in your arms,

I might say good-bye.

    Powerful. This is how I will feel should anything happen to my kids.
