Somewhere along the way I found it easier to write about the pain then to document the joy.
Pen to paper, words poured out in sadness.
An instant relief in the acknowledgement of the agony.
But, what am I to do when days of joy fall swiftly one after the other?
I’m not chasing the stages of grief. If I say it out loud will I jinx it?
You should know I am happy.
I make plans for my girls.
I dream about the man I love.
And, I am in awe of the life I’m living.
The words now typed I will trust.
Regardless of what happens next, today’s joy will always be mine.
