Sitting at my bay window very deep in thought
It’s the only real place were I zone out from my reality
I ponder about things I could have done and could be
I am not saying that my life is not fulfilled
I have the doting husband, the loving and care free children.
It’s picture perfect.
But between me and you
I feel so lost in my role as a wife & mother and caretaker.
I’ve forgotten me.
Beside the window
I look at pictures of myself past & present
My body has changed—I was never a size 2
But I’ve gained all this weight in all the wrong place.
I sit here
At my favorite place to be
looking at the hillside view.
