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
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
