Taking On the World

I can't unlove
the most vital
role in my life

This life 
would have been
without you 

Letting you go 
left me 

When I dream 
I still see
you and I

taking on this 

In my next life 
I pray we find 
each other

      1. I follow hundreds of blogs. More than I can possibly keep up with. I decided that I can only follow more new blogs if I feel that something that I read on their blog strikes me as extraordinary with subject matter that I want to follow. Sorry.

    Bellissimo, My Dear, Bellissimo!!
