Now that you’re gone
now that you’re gone
that I’ll fall back into old habits
they die hard, as Mick reminds us
and it’s so easy to live passively
to let life wash over you
like the waves of Lake Ontario on my weary traveled feet
I’m so tired.
With you it was so easy.
I was never tired. I felt alive and energized and hopeful.
I want to be good role model for my daughter
show her how to love deeply and completely
not to run from challenges
but how can I
when I can’t even do that myself.
