I WANT MY LIFE BACK:

I WANT MY LIFE BACK:
As most of you know
Life for me has been bleak.
No matter what I do to solve problems,
Each and every week.

I want the "old me" back.
Who used to enjoy life.
But what with a bad relationship,
health, family problems causing tears and strife.

I can't come up with the answers,
My blogging friends on line,
Are my only friends.
 They collectively, are realy, really fine.

But I do so want my family back,
Six years is a long time.
I'm sure if they were back
My health issues would be fine.

I think I will buy a broomstick,
At Halloween fly to Spain.
Put my son on the broomstick
And fly him "Home" again.

He could then sort his brother and sister,
Who have insulted me over the years.
How many nights ......they are countless,
I've gone to bed in tears.

I have never given up "Hope"
But that is dwindling fast.
They are the first in my thoughs each morn.
And at night they are the last.

  1. I'm sorry you have lost so much in the past few years. Losing that bad relationship was a good thing though. Praying everything else will come to a good place soon.

    1. Thanks Alex, Yes losing the bad relationship was a good thing but he took away my confidance, dignity and and self respect. As for my "Three Wonderful Children" they to have deprived my of seeing my grandchildren. I hope to see Danny Boy again next September but the tickets have to be bought next month and that means going to the theatre to get them , that's another problem at present,
      Yvonne.

  2. Dear Yvonne,

    May that hope in your heart not become a dwindling flicker but a glowing beacon that transcends to your loved ones.

    I do so wish that you have a peaceful, hopeful weekend, my kind friend.

  3. Yvonne, I'm so sorry that you're still estranged from your family, and that you haven't been feeling well. It's great that you're working on writing another poetry book! You should be proud of all you've accomplished, and try to focus on the positive things. I know it's easier said than done, but you must take care of yourself. Maybe there's a local group that you can join to help take your mind off things. Sending lots of good thoughts your way.

    1. Thanks Julie for your lovely comment.
      The situation of my family is making me ill with anxiety,
      I am not into clubs in this area, it's an area I don't like.
      I shall be concentrating on my book when the mood takes me.
      Yvonne.

  5. A Mom will always be forgiving. That is being a good Mom. Giving them space will work wonders. The time will come perhaps they are deciding, it will come Yvonne!

  6. I think 6 years with one son and three years with my daughter is long enough to be acting this way Hank.
    Many thanks for coming by.
    Yvonne.
