“They all go through their little ruts, but they end up alright in the end”
Although this is a quote from my better half in reference to the Walking Dead series characters, I believe this is true of the characters in our own lives. My mother went through a divorce in 2014 and now she is back with her husband. I was not sure how I felt about this. I wanted her to be strong enough to be by herself; I wanted her to be happy in my own definition of happy.
I was holding your hand when the whole world came crashing down
I was listening with a pained heart when no one was around
My heart hardened when you found another man to caress
My ears were turned off when you said you knew best
Lonely nights you spent alone in your bed
Fearing the future with scary thoughts in your head
I tried to convince you I could be enough
Knowing the sweet nothings were too tough.
How telling retrospect can be
It is now that I can finally see
You were just going through a rut, a crevice if you will
A huge dent that looked as if it would loot and pilage and kill
Yet you have risen again, my beautiful Phoenix bird
As long as you are happy, I care not that all of the lines are blurred.
