MY MONDAY THOUGHT:
A new week has started again,
Full of joy and hope.
Although there is a nip in the air,
My morning walk I did cope.
My thought on this Monday,
Is something my doctor said to me.
When asked if I'd heard from my family,
My wonderful family of three.
When I replied I had not.
This to me she replied.
"Forget about them Yvonne,"
You only have one life she sighed.
How can one forget one's children?
Those into this world you brought?
Seeing them through their bad times,
Also the happiness they brought?
To say I am heartbroken,
I wouldn't be telling a lie.
But I must have some hope in life,
As the weeks and months pass swiftly by.
So is my doctor right?
Forget them at all cost?
I pointed out to her....how would she feel
If her entire family she lost.
I'll soldier on relentlessly,
Not feel sorry for myself.
For I know in this world.
I have three children.......my entire wealth.
