Two of them- there were two

The only ones left to find

Where to look and how to search –

I would not leave them behind

Fifty years I’d combed and scraped

I’d wondered, wished, and pined

Never give up, never lie down

I would not leave them behind

It seemed so fast, it seemed so clear

The day had not been kind

I remember the cries and short good-byes

Still, I would not leave them behind

Rejoice this day for I have found

A joyous peace of mind

My life-long quest to find the twins!

I did NOT leave them behind.


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.

    Beautifully written. I can feel the emotion behind your poem.

  2. Gives rise to the pain of leaving behind a loved one that is an incorrigible drug addict and about to lose everything. One can no longer co-own the problems for years and years.

    I know this has been a source of angst for you, Stacey. I’m glad you have found resolution

  4. I’m so glad you found them! Though I don’t know the story, I can feel the peace in finding.
