One More Day Without You

One more day without you.

But this day is special because if I believe my adoption papers, it’s your birthday today.

And today I don’t care if they’re wrong.

Today you would be 69 years old.

Not a day goes by that I don’t think of you.

Not a day goes by that I don’t miss you.

Not a day goes by never to return.

Not a day goes by without giving me hope.

But not a day goes by without taking it from me too.

Maybe one day we will meet again.

Maybe one day you will turn around.

And that day, I’ll be there too, and I won’t blame you.

May you take care of yourself while I find you.

Wherever you are, whatever you do I love you mom.

  1. Joy Smith – SW coast of Scotland – I am a nearly 60 something female, who has spent most of her career in the health profession. I have 20 years of Nursing as a General Nurse under my belt, before moving into the Complementary Health sector. First I gained a qualifications in Massage and Aromatherapy, before setting off on the McTimoney Chiropractic pathway. I qualified in 1998 and have since been working in my own clinic "Aligned with Joy" since qualifying. In this time I have come to realise that our physical health often reflects our emotional health, and have helped many people overcome hurdles that were an added bonus to dealing with their physical pain. I am currently undertaking more study, thsi time with the Upledger Institute to become a cranio-sacral therapist. I am also halfway through writing a book or two. The first one is a memoir of my life working as a McTimoney Chiropractor, the second is my life of coming to terms with being adopted. I am now dedicating my life to bringing more Joy into people's lives. You can join the Aligned with Joy Community on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/groups/alignedwithjoycommunity/
