Parting Paths

I wake laying on my side. i don’t want to open my eyes.
I groan and try to go back to sleep.
It is to late. Emotions begin to course through me, my brain woke with my body.

A tear wells up at the corner of my eye, i squeeze me eyes shut alittle harder, trying to force back the feelings. I bury my head under the pillow and snuggle down deeper into the blankets.

it is early, the sun just beginning its path into the sky, I hear the birds merrily chirping outside my window,

My body is relaxed, slowly i feel the emotion working its way from my core outwards, towards my legs, my arms, muscles tingle and clench.

My heart swells with emotion, becoming a physical pain. I groan again and snuggle deeper into my caccoon.

I sigh and accept that this is going to be an emotional, sentimental day.
Today i shall leave behind a wonderful chapter in my life. Everything is packed and ready to go.

I think of the children who will be accomplishing their goal that they have strived so hard for. I wish i could be there to encourage them, hug them, love them. Alas i cannot be there physically, but i am standing beside them in spirit.

Silently encouraging, lifting them, smiling at them. Touching them in my minds eye. It will be awhile before i see them again.

I miss them already. We’d love to keep things the same forever but life continues. Life alters. Paths convert,

We each travel our own paths alone, for brief moments those paths converge and we walk together.

then they separate again. We can still see each other but from a distance, we will wave and smile and encourage from a far.

My thoughts return to the day. Still much to do! i sigh and toss back the covers, greeting the day. i rise and begin to do all that must be done. My path slowly parting from those i love and adore.

A new adventure begins, new people to meet, new goals to accomplish, I will be along this path again. I will walk beside those i love once again, but we shall all be slightly different, grown, altered.

I walk alone yet not alone in this world
