In The News

I just read this story
about a woman
who couldn’t let go
so she didn’t.
She chose love
and life despite
the pain it might bring
to others.
People said she was mad,
her friends thought
she had gone crazy.
But now she smiles
and laughs
and freedom courses
through her lungs
and he holds her hand
and she opens her eyes
to his face.
Twenty years for her.
Twelve for me.
She didn’t want to wait anymore.
I wish I had her courage.

  1. If this is a true story, it’s the most special thing that I’ve ever read.

    If it’s just a poem. I have to say that it made my heart hope for a moment. A moment away from the anguish.
