Prose for Thought – One Year On.

Prose for Thought – One Year On.

Welcome to this week’s Prose for Thought and today, appropriately, it is National Poetry day! Definitely a day to celebrate.

A big thank you to everyone who linked up their wonderful creativity last week and for the kind comments about my poem.

I know that some of you lovely people set me a poetry challenge last week but I am going to carry that over to next week. I hope you don’t mind.

Today, I am not going to explain my poem. I am just going to let it ‘be’.



One Year On

A twinkle in my eye
Is what you were to me
All I could do was cry
It wasn’t meant to be

You went before you came
A tiny space and time
So was it me to blame?
I wonder what’s my crime?

Trying hard to blot it
But it’s always in my face
Everyday I see it
Out there in cyberspace

Those people out there
They don’t really know
I’m sure that they would care
That I feel each share a blow

One year on it takes me
And still you’ve not returned
Is this what it’s going to be?
My heart still getting burned

Well we won’t ever give in
Here is your rightful place
So come and start the living
We can’t wait to see your face

    I am a week late with this I know, but just catching up and wanted to send you my thoughts and love. I can hazard a guess what you might be going through and if I’m right I’m so sorry as it sucks. I know because I’ve been there, and am back there (albeit in a different way) again. We have had fertility problems, treatment and loss and though I wish I could say that things will all work out, I know life isn’t always like that and it isn’t always fair. I just wish you peace, and perhaps a little comfort in knowing that you aren’t alone x

    Beautiful poem xx
    Don’t give up hope but try not to dwell (I know how difficult that is).

    Oh Vicky. It is so fraught. So disappointing. Try to let go. Wait for this to come to you. It will come. x
