My Poem “Lost and Found”

It’s been a long time since I wrote like this…
It’s been a long time since I felt like this…
It’s been a long time since I felt as if I were adrift…
It’s been a long time since I made a wish…
It’s been a long time since I felt as if I had
nothing else to anchor me
except for my family and my poetry…
It’s been a long time since I looked in the mirror
and I did not recognise who was looking back at me...
It’s been a long time since I saw some of the muses
who over the last ten years have knowingly,
or unknowingly, inspired me...
It’s been a long time since
I experienced a true new beginning -
but now that I have been left by those
who I once thought I knew and who I thought knew me,
I believe that I am having to walk while fully awake –
where before, perhaps, I had only been sleep-walking...
It’s been a long time,
but I think I know who I am now…
It’s been a long time,
but I think I get the message clear and loud…
It’s been a long time,
but I think I have been touched by a light
like the sunlight that eventually
breaks through even the darkest of clouds…
It’s been a long time,
but I think I have arrived somewhere
where I have acquired what I have been looking for –
somewhere I can only acquaint to being
some kind of poetic Lost and Found.
