A Song without A Sound

The truth is out – I have been freed

From the shackles of the past

No more to suffocate on what I know

My soul is liberated at last!

The past is never too far away

To escape the present day

Never will there be a time

When there is no price to pay

I am, at least, free from fear

Of what to do or say

If only I’d had the courage then

If the cards were mine to play

The family that was lost and gone

So many years has gone

The seasons changed and so did I

Still to me – they still belong

How strange, how cruel life can be

So many twists and turns

Yet fate, it seems, does have a way

To mend the bridges burned.

Jackie, Jan, Jamie, and I

We pose – a moment in time

Then separate lives we’d go on to live

With little reason nor rhyme.

For many years I’ve wondered why

And when me’d meet again?

The day is here, the time is nigh –

We meet somewhat and then..

I find myself alone again

Although each sibling near –

I dare not speak until my turn

The ghosts that haunt appear.

I did my part to reunite

The pieces left unfound

My heart it sings a brand new song

A song without a sound.






About inmycorner

This blog began as an opportunity to tell my Dad's stories. I sat with him and the computer and together we told stories. It was a wonderful way to get to know Dad. He was 9. He and Mom had a wonderful life together and since she passed away a year and a half before him - Dad was ready to join her. I no longer tell his stories but have found stories of my own. The impetus to resume this blog was the discovery that I had stage 4 ovarian cancer. Since blogging had been so therapeutic for my dad and I to get through our grief, I felt maybe this would be a good outlet to process my situation. I also hoped it may serve as an outreach to anyone else who is facing this very ominous journey. So far, so good.
