NaPoWriMo poem 26

Hello Readers,

Welcome to my belated 26th poem of my NaPoWriMo writing challenge.

Poem 26 is called We Are Love. 

As a child I would play,
Pretending I would never grow up,
Idle to the world each day,
Continually sipping the aging cup,
Before I knew it I was a teen,
Figuring out my life's direction,
Then all of a sudden I was sixteen,
Soon to be independent without protection,
I fooled around, then fell in love,
And, I was no longer alone,
Giving myself the final shove,
With a home of my own,
We both worked to pay the rent,
Aimlessly living from day to day,
Then we married and I got pregnant,
Giving another piece of my heart away,
Now, with a child of my own,
It felt strange to be a mother,
Realising I had fully grown,
Then I gave birth to another,
Soon my children were at high school,
Growing up way too fast,
Hanging with their friends, acting cool,
As I reminisced in times past,
It wasn't long and they were wed,
And, suddenly I was old,
Forgetting what I had said,
And, memories were like gold,
Now I stare death in the face,
As my spirit gently drifts,
Moving on from this place,
And its wonderful gifts,
Precious moments stored inside me,
There's one thing I'll take above,
As my spirit soars free,
A vessel of light and love.

Thanks for reading,
Louise Lake.
