The Future.


The future.
I wish I could see it.
Could tell you it is going to be right.
And all will be well.

Sometimes I sense it.
Can feel it for you.
Feel that peace.

I wish I could bottle it up.
Send it to you.
Pour it over you.
Drench you in it.

It was so hard.
Worry.
Wanting.
Waiting.
Wondering.
Who is coming?

Building your family.
It seems so easy.
Get married.
Get pregnant.
Have children.
Live happily ever after.

But for us...
It wasn't so easy.
Because plans have a way of falling apart in mid-flight.
Crashing before our eyes.
Breaking our hearts.

But I have been there.
And picked up the pieces.
And it happened.
It does happen.
It will happen.

There is a baby in my house.
Fast asleep.
A baby who lives.
Because they didn't.
A baby who was worth it.

It was so hard.
But he was worth the worry.
Worth the wanting.
Worth the waiting.
Worth the wondering.
He was coming.

And he stayed.
He came.
And he stayed.

I wish I could bottle it up.
Send it to you.
Pour it over you.
Drench you in it.

Sometimes I sense it.
Can feel it for you.
Feel that peace.

The future.
I wish I could see it.
Could tell you it is going to be right.
And all will be well.
All will be well.

Someone will come
And you will know
Peace.

  3. Oh, Laura, do I love this! I feel like this so often, so I love how beautifully you've expressed it here. Because, as you know, "There is a baby in MY house. Fast asleep. A baby who lives. Because they didn't. A baby who was worth it."

    Sometimes it's hard to reconcile that she lives because they didn't. It's an ongoing struggle. But I accept it, and am even grateful for it, for I am at peace now that I have my gift, my reward, my Sweet Caroline.

    Love you, friend! xoxo Mary
