I'm Home
Divorce closes certain doors while opening others
we sold the house, no longer a home
good friends  I've known for years
a little money in my pocket...
a healing heart.
But my sisters kept pulling me with the silver ribbons
that held my heart together in one piece
If you want to spend some quality
time with Mom while she
still has some good
years left...
I kissed my sons good-bye, had I  taught them well?
quit my good job that i had been striving for
gave away all but a few treasures
and moved to Arizona.
No of course, I've never lived in the barren desert before!
could an old tumble-weed patch become home?
the first weeks were spent in the hospital
my sister needed open heart surgery
Mom  got  a  new  pace maker.
We sat side by side in the waiting room and prayed
talked about our youth that quickly sped away
laughed and cried  just like times of old
sudoku and words of cheer to pass
the time and watch the clock
they needed me
I'm home!

Your poem clearly describes the important things in life that no amount of money can buy.

How lucky you are Linda Jo, to  have found a new home.  Loved your poem.  The courage to move-on with your life and make a new home for yourself.  Such a well written poem.

yet another great statement of how home is where the heart is - we may move on, but certain things - like family - remain constant and are a the core of "home" - wonderful work here, Linda Jo - as per usual

Sister's can be sisters when they need to be.  Mine helped us in times of trouble.  Something I never expected, yet it was there when needed.  Pains in the butt that they are, I still love them and evidently they love me
Nice isn't it.              Gene

Indeed you were Linda, home is more the bricks and morter,its the love of your close ones around you, that feeling of belonging, I believe your poem creates that atmosphere well done indeed~Graham.
