Poetry featured in the book of poetry called ‘The Forsaken Muse, A Woman’s Journey from Sorrow to Hope’
Dedicated to all the beautiful women (and lovely men who understand:-))
By the way, lots of men have said this poem also applies to them…of course, of course. :-)
Somewhere in time
There was a woman
Who waited and hoped and loved.
Sitting by the train station
Waiting for the man who promised
he will come back.
She never got tired, she waited long,
Until one day she realised
she has a life of her own.
“I deserve to be loved, respected and cared for,
I will search for someone, I’m sure.”
It was so long ago and so far away
This story that I’m telling you now.
Somewhere in time,
do you think she found someone?
From an old book I read, this was what she said-
“I am a woman racing against time
I searched far and wide for ‘someone.’
Thank God I found love and meaning and grace
And never lost it again to time and space…..
People say impossible, how could it be?
I say yes, it is possible to be free.
*The ‘someone’ that I found was ‘me’.”*
“Woman must come of age by herself – she must find her true center alone. More than anyone, she is her very own soulmate ".
