My Life (post divorce and empty nest) in Sonnets


Original Contemporary Poetry by Author, Jean Parr


I met him online, a handsome man, putting myself out on a limb
I was hesitant to reveal too much about myself, scarred
He just had this patient, supportive, kind way about him
I let down my guard

As we learned a little more about each other
I found that he vetted me through Facebook, which must have been stressful
An absolutely perfect thing to do, as there might be things needing to be uncovered
One can never be too careful

As I began letting him in with clarity
I found that he made me feel safe and protected
Safety is and will always be my number one priority
He tells me everyday that I'm beautiful, selected

Both of us jumped into relationships too fast
We both deserve that forever someone to make it last
