Looking Back

Looking back...... I see the time that was...
Not the first time this has happened to me
It happened a few times before.

Once upon a time I left the safety of my parents domicile
To find my own and make my life with my own rules
In my own time.... then.....

There was a time when all that changed, once again
Did an abrupt about face....
And I was getting married........ then....

To my surprised excitement.....not once, but three times
I became a mom and life was .....
All brand new and I was like my own mother....... but then...

Life became a living hell... died he did... my love and life
My children and I were all that was left .....and I.....
Felt all alone in this life......... and then.....

Like the sun coming out after a storm
He came to me, A fresh breeze and clean air
To my side and to his I abide.........Now Then......
