“My May”

this is the month
when everything changes
this is the month
of old and new
it’s NOW
that time speeds up
my walls will be empty
the furniture…gone
things packed up

this is the month
when I’ll leave San Diego
and my son
and enter into life
with my husband

as I drive away
knowing
it’s forever
as I point my heart
in the direction of Texas

this is the month
of new beginnings
and old endings
when familiar becomes distant
and distant becomes familiar

in the arms of one
who was
in the arms of one
who is
in the arms of one
who will always be

this is the month
I’ve been waiting for
