Together: a Poem

My husband wrote this for me last night, so I thought I would share. I hope your Dr. King day is going well.

Are you lonely

   When the clouds hang low in the sky?

                  The moon is hidden

The silence cloaks the chaos of the day

I think of you

All the miles I traveled

                               The years of trials

                           Just to find you

Could it be

                    that perfection lies in the       imperfections

                    Of daily life?

            On this tiny plot of land

       We make our life day by day

Wondering if we matter

         Wondering if anything matters

          Wandering side by side

Through paths we can’t see or feel

Knowing that this is all there is.

      That   this    is all there ever will be.

This could be enough.

     This is enough.

And inside enough lies an ocean of freedom

Endless possibilities 

Even if every day seems the same

Within each struggle, something of value


Knowing all the while

Knowing we need to know

Knowing we can never comprehend 

Knowing the days are numbered

       Knowing we are one in billions

             Alone on this spinning rock 

Helplessly watching as it winds its way down



Through the oft traveled road of the universe

But in this random moment

                        Here we are

  2. Thank you for sharing the wonderful poem!!.. and in the end what matters is you are both there… 🙂

    Hope all is well in your part of the universe (especially with the weather) and until we meet again..
    May love and laughter light your days,
    and warm your heart and home.
    May good and faithful friends be yours,
    wherever you may roam.
    May peace and plenty bless your world
    with joy that long endures.
    May all life’s passing seasons
    bring the best to you and yours!
    (Irish Saying)
