Moving Forward

We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.” ― Joseph Campbell


It’s too soon to move forward
Yet I can’t get the clock to stop ticking
My heart cannot let go
Yet every movement into tomorrow
Freezes in the present.
Wounds are too open
Memories are too fresh
Yet weathermen forecast tomorrow’s rain
And investors plan the market.
Often I feel as if in a time warp
A spaceship hurtling forward
A time machine stretching backwards
A yesterday too painful to remember
A today not worth remembering
Hold onto the fog a little longer
Throw direction to the four winds
Tomorrow is Yesterday is Today once again
And the impression of control
Is a fleeting glimpse into the impossible

  1. It’s sad to think that tragedy can bring out such intense and wonderful poetry, but it always does. I’ve been there, I know. It is how we eventually find some peace in the face of horror. Sending you as much love as the air will handle.


  2. Oh beautiful friend I can’t even imagine. No mother should ever have to go thru this. It’s just all so wrong. Pls know I think about you & your family send you so much love & hugs.
