I lay, suspended in my fear,
in my worry, in my sorrow.
In the pit of my being is
to refuse change, to stay as I am,
where I am. Tears spring
to my eyes, as I think of
what will soon become reality.
All that I once and always knew,
will be scattered around me,
estranged, never to fit together again.
The puzzle pieces of my life have been
moved to places of which I
am not familiar. They are now
only chunks that drift in my
sea of memories, but they
will soon leave me, as memories
always do. I will wave a solemn goodbye
while I watch them drift
downstream, to a place where I can never venture.
that mean so much to me…
I won’t even remember.
