Second Chances

Perhaps it is a different time
to softly walk and just unwind
for within this new dawn brings fragrant lullabies
blossoming friendships and strong family ties

Perhaps there is much more to see
within each day, low what lay beneath--
tainted and toiled; soiled, shambles
things that hinder --not in focus

The once upon a golden dreams
fantasy, fallacies upon those shores
where we were to meet
somewhere cries the silver lining from the clouds where my head did lay

awakening upon the ground
and again and again so the story goes
Until I got the courage to go 
to a place that doesn't feel much like home

Exhaled a breath when I crossed the county line

Still the hardest of all was pulling into a familiar drive
as She opened the trailer door
frail and in her eighties
The woman who disproved everything thing I did at one time

as our eyes met there was a softness in mine
"Perhaps this is not the right time?"
Remembering the hurt of her never nurturing crossed my mind
"No." as she struggled to put a plate of food before me and my upset stomach

Funny how the food was exceptionally well for my ailment and I was hungry after all
I told her of my mistakes and this time there was a softness in her words
Perhaps there was more than the second chance I had set out to find
This one was for me. How selfish  could I be?!
