How Did I Get Here?
It was not meant
to be like this
Searching a lifetime
to be with you
What did I miss?
We had both fallen
in the past
Stumbling in flaky blind love
finding each other at last
was a dress rehearsal
For what was to be
Never expecting a reversal
We learned our lessons well
or so I thought
only to be derailed
A love and life casualty
and all the pain it brought
How did I get here
in this too familiar place?
Alone and heartbroken
at the start of the race

Thank you so much 🙂 Hope you are well
Doing much better, thanks.
Good. I’m happy to hear that 🙂💕
I’m so happy it resonated with you. Relationships are so complex and the older we get the harder they become, it seems. Thank you Beckie 😔💕
Christine, WOW! This piece resonated with every fiber of my being. Wonderfully written.
Oh, I love this, Christine! ❤️
Awww. Thanks Punam 🙂💕
My pleasure, dear! 💞
Sad but lovely embroidery on the theme, “one step forward, 2 steps back”–maybe?
More like three! Thank you dear Avia 💕🙂
Oh goodness, that’s so hard–truly I know: three weeks ago I thought I’d finally gotten the depression under control…returned with a vengeance. BUT, I trust God for a turnaround 🙂 <3
Yes, it’s that positive thinking ad trust that will see you through the dark times. Thinking of you ❤️☺️👍
Thank you, dear💖
The start of the race again
For aching bones, it’s a strain
Too many pieces down the drain
I don’t think there’ll be more warm rain
Oh I inspired you! Very nice Ivor 🙂💕
You have a habit of inspiring me Christine… I think I associate with words closely….xx
Yes and they take you to your music too. What a lovely combination! 🙂❤️
You now make smile with joy 😁🌎🤗
Thanks Sadje. You’re sweet 🥰
And you’re welcome!
I liked this very much Christine.
Thanks Di … I’m happy you liked it 🥰
