Who Am I?

I like neatness,

yet,

here I sit,

in a messy room.

And I am fine with that.

I like quiet,

yet,

here I sit,

surrounded by sound.

And I am fine with that.

I like friendship,

yet,

here I sit,

without a friend.

And I am fine with that.

I like dreaming,

yet,

here I sit,

feeling dreamless.

And I am fine with that.

I like teaching,

yet,

here I sit,

without any students.

And I am fine with that.

I like marriage,

yet,

here I sit,

without my husband.

And I am fine with that.

I like the present,

yet,

here I sit,

thinking about the future.

And I am fine with that.

I like writing,

and,

here I sit,

without much more to say.

Except.

I like love,

and,

here I sit,

knowing,

 love surrounds me.

And I am grateful for that.

      • Me too Daph. It is because you sent me there in the first place, that I even let anything out into the cybers. Now I miss the people, the words, and the wonderful connection. Do you realize that I have known you now for (shhhhhh) 44 years? I thought about that a few days ago, and smiled. You are still as sweet as you were then. I am glad to have had the opportunity to reconnect… particularly in writing.
