PUZZLED

When I was young, I
had an idea
of what my life would
look like. Each day, each
year, each decade has

instead, pieced my
life into a
picture I had
not been planning.

At nearly
fifty: no
husband or

children.
It’s just

me.

  1. Don’t you dare say “just you” as though that wasn’t enough! There’s YOU! And she’s very special indeed. Keep living the life you have not pining for the one you covet. Love you, Mosk

    1. Thank you, Mosk. As I said in a comment above, melancholy seems to be my fallback…and this form just lent itself to feeling diminished…love you, too.
