Moving On Poem by Ernestine Northover

Moving On

Rating: 5.0

I'm moving on and forward now
Into spheres unknown,
I'm trying to find the strength somehow,
To make it on my own.

I'm starting with a chapter new,
A fresh page in my life,
I've had to become an adapter, who
Was once a loving wife!

I'm struggling hard to find a way
To come to terms with pain,
An throughout all the crying, pray
That I will smile again.

I'm moving on and forward now,
And hope time will be kind,
Lifting my lonely spirit somehow,
For eventual peace to find.

We feel your sadness, admire your braveness, will you on in your struggle. A wonderful piece of acceptance of the worst that life can bring; of hope and of moving on, beloved Ernestine. Bittersweet, delicate. Remarkable, as you are. t x
