celebrating and creating our own LGBTQ+ history in honour of Sheila McWattie

day ten

2020 vision.
I saw my life, not a wife
Not a mother, hoped for a lover
Tried the guys, then got wise
I found my tribe, I had the vibe
Found THE woman, then became human
Decades passed, it did not last
When we split, life was shit
Years being single, nowhere to mingle
I met a guy, we both felt shy
A very old flame, but we’re not the same
A spark reignited, I’m not short sighted
I see the future, a new adventure.
Chrissie, Wales
