Life Happens .....

by Penny Balderas
(Chicago IL )

Life is what happens to you while you’re busy
making other plans. Reality comes around. You
feel helpless then hopeless. There is a huge
empty hole where love use to be. You are lost
in thoughts & emotions. What do we do?
You feel incomplete. A part of you is gone forever.
Will I ever feel whole again? You outlook is bleak.
You feel alone & lonely. This is my reality. I think so
much it begins to get confusing. Who am I?
Where are you?
Life goes on but without you. Everything has changed
There is no “we” or “us” it’s just me. I have no friend
partner or husband .I still don’t believe it’s over
No new memories to be made. It’s difficult to think
about & harder to accept,
Can I walk the path alone?
I have no choice now.....I am alone.
