left behind for the best

Six bridesmaid dresses.

Ten friends and counting…pairing off.

rings and flowers and vows.

young brides.

doting grooms.

happy lives.

new homes.

gifts from registries.

swelling tummies.

growing families.

over a dozen babies born.

smiling and celebrating with them.

as I sit in my house…alone.

not a wife.

not a mother.


for him.

to make my forever.

About ksluiter

Just a small town girl...wait no, that is a Journey song. Although I do live in a small town. I am a wife, a mother, a teacher, and a writer. We have joys and we have struggles. Just like you.

  2. I love this, katie!! Really! It’s got a great rhythm to it.

  3. I hope you find him soon.
    For the record, I was a wife. And I am a mother. And I feel lonely too sometimes.

    Sweet and sad all at the same time. But like someone else has said: I am a wife. I am a mother. And I am SO lonely sometimes.

    Thank goodness for the blog!

    I love the poem:) Your forever will come when you least expect him.
    On another note, wife or mother or not … we all get lonely at times:)

    Wow. Very honest. And Raw.

    Like another response said. I’m a wife and mom. And I was lonely last night.
    I think lonely is in your heart more than your surroundings?!
