Sewing It Together

Our footprints in the sand veer off
two different paths they’re treading now
you go on and live your life…

I’ll be here, I’ll be sewing it together
working the thread you taught me to weave
I go on and live my life…

You go on, for we both must grow
push the boundaries of all we can be
I’m grateful for the years in your love
I pray you’ll remember me the same

Even when the brightest spark had faded
and we both knew our time was ending
still you were my best friend
still you gave to me so much

Your fingerprints on my heart will linger
I hope they never fade, a gentle reminder
Now, you must go on and live your life…

I’m sewing it together, here
I’ll go on, as you’re sewing it together too
and I wish you only love…


Thanks for reading.

    1. Aww, thank you Suzanne. ☺ Sometimes partings are necessary, and essential, even. This poem was me realising and embracing the idea that it’s best to part with love rather than any lingering anger, sadness or bitterness.

    1. Thank you Kimberly, parting can be absolutely necessary and regardless of how painful, I do think it’s essential to focus on wishing the best for the person you left/lost. I think it might even be a shortcut toward happiness for yourself.
