When We Are Alone

MohawkValleyGirl https://mohawkvalleygirl.wordpress.com/ suggested I write another Sestina, the type of poem written yesterday for The National Poetry Month Scavenger Hunt. I like to take on challenges so here it is…

Where do I go from now until then 
making the decisions for two  
Living with someone yet living alone 
Trying to remain positive despite the darkness 
No one here is to blame 
We work with the life we are handed. 

From the beginning we are handed 
to the one who has birthed us then 
There is no one to blame 
We came to the light from darkness 
And we are no longer alone. 

There have been times I have felt alone 
But I am blessed with what I have been handed. 
I live in the light and escape  the darkness 
I try to remember how it was then 
When I was alone, before there were two 
And there was no reason for blame. 

When feeling down we seek a soul to blame 
Because we are feeling so alone 
We wish that there could be two 
But we live with the life we are handed 
Knowing that loneliness will be for then 
And the now is coming out of darkness. 

We will continue to have periods of darkness 
We will look for the person to blame 
We may not find anyone then 
We will see that we are still alone 
Because our life is what we are handed 
And there may not always be two. 

Bless the days when you are not one but two 
Remember you are out of the darkness 
You live this beautiful life you were handed. 
There is no reason to look for blame 
For you no longer feel alone 
You hold onto these feelings until then. 

For what we are handed is the hope for two 
We then look to hope instead of darkness 
For we are the ones to blame when we are alone.
