Whether you began here
your goal was this
and eventually this.
But something went terribly wrong.
So you’ve spent more time here
than you planned.
When they call to ask about her,
you tell them.
When they neglect to ask about you,
you think, It’s okay. I’m okay.
And when they say things like:
“God has a plan”
“Time heals all wounds”
“Everything happens for a reason”
you remember they say it for themselves.
there. are. no. words.
You try to give her this
but nothing helps.
And you find yourself here
caught between these.
You remember life before,
when this word was everywhere
instead of this one.
And the two of you looked like this
instead of this.
Wherever you are on your journey…
whether you’ve chosen this
I hope you’ve found a way to honor your babies
and each other.
