A poem

A yellow ribbon of miniature vining roses tells the story of the winding road I've traveled

I wrapped my story in yellow ribbons

Thinking there was a different resolution

Only to discover the reality

That life is what it is.

I wrapped my story in yellow ribbons

Seeking the answer to why this happened

Only to discover that there was no explanation

It just happened.

I wrapped my story in yellow ribbons

Thinking it was all about my husband and son

Only to discover it was about me as well.

I wrapped my story in yellow ribbons

Expecting a return to the comfort of the past

But found instead the power of living

Here and now, anew, moment to moment.

I wrapped my story in yellow ribbons

And found myself suddenly letting go of it all

And happy.
