She claimed them
as part of her family
the short the tall
the thick the small

She wondered where
she would be
without them all
spinning in confusion
drowning in tears
starving for empathy
craving strength
listening to dreams

She found life
fuller for them
lesser in want of them
a balance was needed.IMG_1174

She walked the path
holding a hand
glancing over
her shoulder
guided by the
stride of one
in front of her
Buoyed by
memories of
ones lost but
not forgotten.

Any thoughts on the above post are appreciated! Otherwise, I think I must be living under a rock.
