My Sarah bunny…


You’re the only one
who truly ever knew me.
I confided in you
nearly every day.
I whispered to you
all my secrets in the dark,
and promised you
everything my little heart could give.
You were the only one who listened
every day when the fights erupted.
You heard my screams
and comforted me the best you could.
When I cried my eyes out,
spilling out countless tears,
you showed me
that I was not alone.
You never left my side,
which always made me feel loved.
And you’re still special to me,
even though you’re not a living being.
I think you’re the only reason
I had any hope at all back then
because my little girl eyes
couldn’t find love or comfort anyplace else.

    1. Thanks, I couldn’t help but think of it. I’ve had that bunny for at least 43 years. And it is currently sitting on top of my bookshelf in my office. A constant reminder that even the littlest of things can help us get through this life.

    1. Thanks so much Susan… it wasn’t easy, but I’ve always attributed my ability to easily overcome hardships, as the result of my difficult upbringing. I think there is always something good to be found in every negative aspect of our lives. Thanks for visiting me today. Means a lot. 🙂
