With pen in hand I sit here
and force these jumbled emotions
Pain, fear, dissapointment, despair still haunt me since the news of Bernard Jr. and Alexa’s marriage demise.
Was it just them? Was it me?
How could this be?
To think they may be grateful
for being childless sears my heart, but I understand.
So I bury my pain as best I can
and counsel if asked for advice.
For in the end, it’s their lives
and to that, I must adjust.
