I Am

I am… Son, sculpted by my mother to be what I am today Husband, holding my wife’s caring hands all the way Father, in lonely nest, all the chicks have flown away Friend of chosen ones, at ease with all my odd ways Poet of whelmed heart, muse pouring out emotions Star-gazer, entranced by dreams on stardust in motion Painter, letting passion spread on canvas spectral wings Perfectionist, finding it difficult to finish so many things Believer, in the construct of my life by destiny’s finesse Ordinary, believing in the possible, pursuing happiness Seeker of wisdom, walk in humble steps on rough road Taker of whatever is given as the precious gifts of God Hater of tears, flowing from the broken hearts’ debris Giver of touch of empathy, so sorrow becomes history Loner in my own inner sky, flying the introspective flight Traveler, finishing the journey on the last mile in twilight. I am waiting to sail to eternity on time’s receding plain I am sure I’ll return, walk on my faded footprints again. May 6, 2020 Contest : I Am : A List Bio Challenge Sponsor : Andrea Dietrich
