It’s hard to think of anything else

When all I want is you.

What happened to us?

We used to be so close.

Now we seem to be set adrift

Two ships passing in the bay

Our lives running concurrent

Yet so very far apart.


Have you forgotten me?

It seems as if you have.

My heart aches so much harder

So much longer than it ever has before.

How do we get us back

Lost in this sea of kids

Of work and financial strife.


I miss us.

I miss the little things

That meant so very much.

I miss your arms,

Wrapped tight around me,

Making me feel safe and secure.


I miss my best friend

Talking and laughing

And sharing, and caring.

I hate how I feel let down

Unloved, disrespected, ignored.


How many more tears will fall

Before you see

How much this abyss between us

Is tormenting me?


All I want is

Me and You

Body, soul, and mind.


Where did you go?

Can we get us back?


I love you.

    I felt every word of that and I just want you to know that I’m holding your heart and know how this feels. All will be well my friend, all will be well. Until it is, I’m here to offer friendship and a shoulder.

    thinking of you.

      Thanks, Kir. Someone told me that blending a family is really hard on the parents and many relationships are destroyed. I’m not wanting to join those statistics and honestly, I don’t even know that “blending a family” is just an excuse or the eye-opener.

    I’m so sorry you are going through a rough patch. I hope it can be figured out, smoothed over and you can begin to move forward together again.

    This is exactly how I feel on the weekends we have the girls over. Set adrift. It is so difficult! Praying for your peace.

  4. Imelda says:

    I hope things will be smoothed out soon. My prayers are with you.

  5. Karen says:

    Blended family or not, it’s easy to get lost in the whirlpool of the family, everyone’s lives, and life as a whole. Hoping you find that smooth ground.

    I can so relate to this. It was like reading my own mind. (Hugs) from an internet stranger.

It's YOUR write side, too! Let's hear it!
