Theme: Anniversary

Was it This Day?

Was it this day
Nineteen years ago
you held my hand
promised vows?
Thrilled was I
with my loved one at last
stars shone in my eyes

Just a month later
insults heaped, humiliations began
Tears flowed...
Your silence robbed the stars
only a darkness remained

Drifting through life
My womb bore the seeds
Of your existence
No happy moments
Just a vacant stare

My dreams,
my ambitions,
my desires,
my smile
my laughter
all lost
to a stillness in my heart

And now,
The woman lost forever
a mother exists
protecting, nourishing,
a lifetime spent
serving others...
