I’m a member of a group on Facebook for poets, lyricists and musicians. A new topic was added today, and for the first time since I joined the group, I felt this urge to write on this topic (not saying I didn’t before but today I stopped everything and began to write). The topic was “Abandon”. I expected most people to write about being abandoned by someone but I wanted my poem to give another aspect that most probably wouldn’t think to give. You see, today was sunny AND warm, and for the first time for the year in Bellevue, Wa sweat poured from me due to the “heat” that I felt. It wasn’t even 60 degrees yet but I felt it. So I hope you understand and like my poem and my perspective of “abandon”.

I waited patiently, still I could not see,

What was owed to me yet not meant to be.

A peek would do but wouldn’t be the same,

I longed for the warmth but it never came.

A few months passed,

The light was dim in my heart.

Finally a ray of hope,

Of what could be the start.

The cool breeze couldn’t stop

The water that ran,

The sweat was welcomed,

Running down my hand.

Alas I can see and feel

All that I waited for.

The warmth of the sun

And the sweat that poured.

No longer shall I feel abandoned and ashamed

An island girl playing the Winter game.

Today, I’m going to the gym for the third day in a row, and as tired and sore as I am, I can’t stop this flow that my husband has so I’ve got my playlist together and I’ll just stay on the treadmill for about half an hour. Something is better than nothing and I have to keep these muscles in check so they don’t get out of shape again. Dinner is finished so we can eat when we return and I need to be in bed early as tomorrow starts earlier than usual. I’m happy, and I’m happy that even though I do not work, my days are filled with things to do even if I don’t know what the hell I’m doing and I still have a supportive husband. Count your blessings one by one and remember just be happy to have life and live it to the fullest. 🙂

Lots of love and sunshine
