Moments to Myself
Please don’t make rhymes
have a reason with tones of
despair; the time has come.
I need to be alone, and it’s
not that I don’t care.
Just a short time to reevaluate,
to collect thoughts of yesterday
a glass of wine and alone in some
quiet and unknown hideaway.
An important time that can’t be replaced
by a material thing or a pseudo thrill,
a time when I come in touch
with me — a better person will
transcend because what we are
is what we reveal.
My heart and soul have been renewed
with new awareness, and
I thank you for understanding
such an unusual request and in return
I will give you all, but more importantly,
I will give you my best.
