Binding Ties



The tie that binds..

when twisted to tight

can cause it

to unwind.


All that you dreamed up,

all that you schemed up,

are now just a dream

of a distant

lost time.


You’re no longer

sure of what’s real…

When did he leave?

What house did you live in?


All that you know

for sure,

is that staying here

was not in the deal.


You just wait

for the day

when we walk in 

to say

“Hi Mom, we’re here!”


It is then 

you remember

how our sweet

and caring faces

help to lift 

your dark doubts away.


And you’re thankful

in that moment…

Our love just made it

a more tolerable

and much brighter day.
