I awoke this morning to a lovely spring day; sun shining; birds singing and this view from the bedroom
I then picked up my iPad and wrote this as a stream of consciousness. No editing. Just saying –
In three weeks
I shall leave this place
So full of happy memories
of love shared
of laughter and friendship.
But now the house sits empty
of those shared things.
What is a house without sharing
It is but an empty shell.
And so now, once again
the wheels of my life have turned
and again, I face the future alone.
Alone, but now even stronger
Strengthened with the memories
of this late love we shared
for such a very short time.
But length of time is irrelevant
You will live in my heart forever my love.
And then I got up and saw this
and just knew how I was going to spend this beautiful Saturday. Isn’t it amazing how much one gathers in a very short time?
And now another quote from Edna St. VincentMillay
“Time does not bring relief; you all have lied
Who told me time would ease me of my pain!
I miss him in the weeping of the rain;
I want him at the shrinking of the tide”.
But enough of melancholy and feeling sorry for myself. I can still enjoy this lovely day, the warmth of friendship and the knowledge that I have so much more in my life than many others.
And now because I’m English and I drink tea
I shall make a pot and think about where I am, where I’ve been and where I’m going.
