I have two poems to post today. Since it’s Mothers Day I thought I should do something for my Mom, so that will follow in my second post. First though, I once again owe a little bit of inspiration to the daily prompt word of the day stroll. A nice little reminder of where I got the inspiration to start into this.
May 8, 2016
It has been nearly three weeks since our stroll together.
The consistency of you on my mind, I can still not untether.
Before that day it seems I was just inhabiting this space.
Now I wake up every day ready to leave my mark on this place.
It seems before you my whole life was a delusion.
Stumbling through my day in some state of confusion.
I remember my whole past, the bad and the good.
It all led to meeting you, to trade it away, I never could.
It is as if I could have survived utter hell.
Just a few moments with you and that evil I could quell.
Before meeting you, I know my life was filled with childish behaviour.
So in finding the reason I want to be a man. I name you my saviour.
That simple, short lived stroll with you could last a lifetime.
Maybe though, we can go for another sometime.
