The other side of the fence

I sit here pondering my life, what I had, what I have, what I want... Things are different now than they were, things are different now than I want.   What I had... A husband, a family, a house!   A husband that worked all day, struggling as he may. he loved me I know this now because no man would have stayed and fought those struggles, but he did some how.  He loved me but I was in a trance, I was looking over the other side of the fence. It looked so beautiful, I know I could be happy, so I jumped over the fence, I left my husband, my life and my family.  What I have... I was right the grass is greener, the flowers are beautiful, but I wonder, where is he, the one I climbed the fence for?  Then I realized in a panic, that he was the manure that made the grass look so green and the flowers so beautiful.  What I want... I want to go back to the other side of the fence, , so I turn around and ran as fast as I can, I know I was wrong. Where is it? The fence is gone!

I've been there, I had to

I've been there, I had to build The fence on my own but then invited my heart to help me paint it then we planted it out with forget me nots and red roses to remind us of the life we once almost shared with out traversing the thorns to get to the roses. Hugss may it all turn out well. Happy building ;)

There's no going back. Just

There's no going back. Just gotta wade through the muck until you can reach that drier land. Where the grass may be a little less green, but the ground is more solid.
