author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)


As I gaze into my wine glass
my mind wanders back to another time
pondering what was and what is

A friend has reminded me of this time
a time a pain and hurt
a time now faded into a blur

I wish I could forget it all together
yet the harshest realities remain
ready to haunt my quieted dreams

A helpless, hopeless, fearful pain
unable to truly forgive and forget
yet I still struggle daily to put aside

Each morning I wake thankful
that my dreams were not disturbed
that the memories were distant enough

Heavily I sigh myself back to the moment
staring into my wine glass; I smile
I'm glad that today things are different

As we take two steps forward there always seems to be one foot back in the past .....memories often remind us of our present state of mind ....
This is a very intimate personal piece of writing!
