Thank you for having me on your blog for day seven of the Just Her Poetry Spotlight Tour!

Finn Facts:

I love nature, and my poetry reflects that.
My favorite genres to read are fantasy, mystery, action, romance, and horror. It’s a bonus when they’re blended.

Blurb:

Take a journey with D.L. Finn as she blends her love of nature with her deepest emotions. Sit with her on the forest floor observing its tranquil beauty, or stroll along the ocean’s shore admiring the vastness of its horizon. Here in these peaceful moments you’ll be able to experience her thoughts and feelings in the light—and in the darkness. This is a thought-provoking collection of poetry that invites the reader into all the seasons of a soul.

Excerpt from Just HerPoetry:

A BIT OF FAMILY

LEAVE

It hurts less each time you leave.
But still you take a piece of me with you.
I think of you in your youth.
A sparkle in your eyes…
Joy in your laughter…
Holding you in my arms…
It all stays with me.
You grew and became.
I was amazed and perplexed.
At times you brought me joy and pain.
I always knew you’d leave,
There was never any doubt.
I felt a bit of pride and sadness,
When you walked to your car.
You’re doing what you’re supposed to do.
So am I.
You’ll always be:
In my heart…
In my mind…
In my prayers.
Every day.
So, leave as you must,
And become what you are.
Distance doesn’t mean a thing to me,
Because when you go, a part of me goes with you.
You’ll always be my child.
I’ll always be your mother.
I know the world deserves you,
And you deserve the world.
I’ll go back now into my own world.
Watchful now for that text, I made it home safely.
Because mothers never stop worrying.
They never stop being proud.
Or ever stop loving even when their child leaves.

    When I first read this poem in Denise’s book, I cried. This describes perfectly what I felt each time my daughters would come from college, then leave again. It’s true. They took a little piece of my heart each time. Thank you for hosting today, Rhani!

    I love this poem. I’m still about five years away from having to experience this, but I completely understand the mother’s point of few and emotions. 🙂
