Now I See - Poem by Sylvain Beauchamp

My sight fails me
now I see

A young girl
Many questions
Much to learn
Now, I see

Much worry, through the years
Kids to raise
sleep to lose
Now, I see

Guilt my burden
No fault of mine
Kept a brave face
Now, I see

Had I known
It was ok
To feel joy
Now, I see

Put myself last
The right thing to do
Or was it?
Now, I see

My kids, having kids
History repeats
I did it right
Now, I see

Forgive myself now
How does one know
Until one knows?
Now, I see

My son's love
There unconditionally
My sight may fail me, but,
now, I see

My sight
may fail me
yet NOW,
I see.

After all this time
Now, I see.
