The past is never what it appears to be
Weighing pros and cons from my reverie.
The things gone by are a lesson for life,
Moving on with a future, uncertain of luck or strife.
As I reflect upon the things, I did in my past
These reflections are deep
Sometimes showing up for contrast.
Though I try to keep them from coming forward
It’s a struggle to not think of how things can have power
This journey I walk is always alone
For this very reason, ensured I have a home.
Reflecting on things I have not managed yet to do
Is a reminder that regrets sometimes - do follow you.
I’ve always wanted to be the best mother I could be
Not sure if you asked my kids, if they would agree.
There is never a day when I’ve forgotten my role
As a mother is forever, all over the world.
They are older, and no longer holding onto my skirts
Now, forever I reflect of God’s blessings with their birth!
Eugi’s Causerie weekly prompt has guided my thoughts, for my verses above.
