~ I Was Alone Both Times ~
~ Kevin ~
You Were Born In My Hands
And Transcended In My Arms
It Was An Honor To Be There
Alongside You Throughout
I Was Alone Both Times
But Never In Between
On the surface, this poem sounds isolating and alone, but really look at that last line: "But Never In Between". We were never alone while they were with us. All throughout our lives we always knew they were there waiting on us to come home. Although we feel alone now, we always have those comforting memories of companionship over the years, and I very much believe they are still with us. Once we truly share a connection like this with another, we are never really alone again.
What kinds of things did you used to do together? How did you spend your time? What was your favorite thing to do with each other? How did they make you feel not-so-alone? Let's think about this for just a minute, then write.
