Returned

The rain once again paid a visit.
His thundering laugh warming
And his blinding smile familiar.
He knows me more than anyone.

I stare in his eyes and I am calmed.
On the days I am too far gone,
He masks my tears with his own.
His presence is something welcomed.

This time he brought me a present.
He has returned my precious stone.
It was filthy, but I readily cleansed it.
Washed, it almost looked the same.

But I saw the fine chips and cracks.
I saw what could not be fixed.
I tried to forget, to no avail.
My precious Jade stone, so loved,

Will never be the same.

    Hey You, sorry I missed this b4 because it is excellent. I love the metaphors you paint and you're right, sometimes we can't go back, well we can some, but then it's usually better to learn and move forward because no, we will never be the same---we'll learn and be better for it.

    Hi Sweetie!!! Welcome back, hon. This is a sad write, but also a happy one. Dear...let me tell you...we are all cracked...in some ways. Life can be tough, but...if we hold on...in time we'll see, the cracks make us stronger. They are a testament to our ability to survive. So happy she's returned. You have a wonderful way of expressing your thoughts. Just like your sweet, Mama. Hugs
