SINGLE MOTHER… Part Three

Single Mother part three
Now we’ve become a trilogy, you see

The oldest one of my two sons
Just turned 18 new life’s begun
Moving fast, his world’s spinning
Not at the start or the beginning
And I can’t hit pause, but I want to

Where did the time go, not long ago
They were just little babies, how much they’ve grown
Me, you and brother James too
Were swimming in the ocean, flying kites brand new
Wearing flip-flops

Didn’t think about, how the years would pass
Never had a moment, always out of gas
Didn’t plan for this, I thought we’d always last, in NOW
I was wrong

So they grew up, I showed up and before I knew
As I did my chores they grew and grew
No longer young boys, men I’ve created
Minutes, hours, days, months and years I waited
For what? Didn’t think about it

Single mother two men I’m raising
Now ones about to fly and the other one’s aging
Before my eyes, I cry I don’t disguise
My emotions, I’m their Mother, they’re my potions my elixir
For life

And the dynamic of my panic, yes it still exists
I hustle through my days, mind in a mist
Toddler, teenage tantrums I can’t insist
My will on them and I feel I missed
Their childhoods

What’s chapter four, heart’s racing wanting more
Of what life has in store, how much can I endure
Life with and without them…
Daily

Time is a thief, memories fade except in pictures
There’s no more evading the invasion of the future
I was there everyday, every step of the way
I had and have the privilege of Motherhood today

So be proud Single mother though the trilogy is over
The sequel is just beginning and life’s a long road
Futures steps are waiting, I have to let go
The past was a blast but on with the show

WE will always be US

About

I am a writer, poet, humorist, screenwriter, blogger. I am not a label. Out of tragedy comes comedy. I see hysterical in the simple. This is my head. I live an extraordinary ordinary life. I am inspired, creative, passionate and fiery. I have been through and will continue. I will put it down and hope you pick it up. I am exposed, vulnerable, honest and authentic. I am sarcastic and witty. My favorite thing to do is watch life and laugh and cry and start over again. I invite you to laugh, release and lighten up with me. When life has kicked your butt, it's all about the comedy! Comedy fuels me, poetry soothes me, and dancing ignites...
