She has been absent for a little while,
Living her fairy tale.
But fairy tales have bad bits too, don’t they?
With fiery dragons, witches who poison and bullies that scare.
Loss, pain and dread.
Their ‘Once upon a time’ has been challenging so far.
2015 has bullied them.
Work issues, broken cars, broken people,
But, they backstep, sidestep,
Running along, trying to get back on track.
She thought about retiring her little blog,
But likes the clickety clack of words that her fingers tap,
And the memories on her page.
Her fairy tale progresses,
She has plans.
She will weather the downs, and relish the ups …
Her life is hers and she will live it,
As best she can.
Page by page.
For their … happily ever after.
