Note: I wrote this a couple of weeks ago, but I wanted to share it to be able to connect with others dealing with the discomfort of things ending and beginning – something we all know well.
oh burning heart,
will the sorrow ever end?
The sound of silence cloaks me in comfort
yet I am moved to tears –
To fear, to memories of embarrassment and loss.
Do you think this torture will end?
I am hungry
for life, for hope again,
for a deep trust in myself.
The journey has just begun anew
and though I am scared, and aggrieved beyond measure,
I will not be deterred by this fire.
I remember a time when
life flowed and I was positively sparkling with joy…
Though enfolded and encumbered in loss
I choose to not be afraid to begin again –
To peek around the newly opened door
and let the Light expose my curiosity.
For in this beginning
there is much love to be remembered,
goodness to be found,
new adventures to share,
and inside of all of it
there is the One:
treasure of my life and life itself.
And so it is with courage, determination, faith and love
that I will begin again.
May all of us find peace – a deep sense of satisfaction – as we begin again.
