The Cruelest Time


This Woman

This Woman

So much Death!
So many endings ~
Too much pain
To keep inside ~

This is the hardest
Time of the year ~
When the sun seems
Powerless ~ against
The early darkness
And the brutal cold ~

The memories
Press down upon me ~
The wind is fierce ~ and
Its chill seeks out
The marrow of my bones
To make its home ~

And you are many years
And many miles ago ~
Another lifetime in a
Different place ~ and
I am a different woman ~

But this woman
Loves you too ~

I'm either a transplanted East Coaster or a born again West Coaster. My heart kept pulling me toward Oregon, and when I followed it I found my dream, which I am living daily. My dream of becoming a writer has come true as well. I am in the company of people who speak my language, and the sense of community is healing hurts I didn't know were there. I am very grateful for my enormous good fortune.

  1. Terrible isn’t it? And wonderful.


  2. I know precisely how you feel.


  3. Beautiful Melody. It speaks to me of a life lived to the fullest and a spirit still vibrant. Thanks for this!

    Even as the dark gathers around us, we can still choose to shine.


    • Well, Larry, it was never my intention to end up with regrets or things left undone, and while I’m still here, I’m Here. I will always choose to shine, won’t you?
