a friend inspired me today.......
her and her beautiful heart.......
taking you past wall after wall,
carrying you beyond the protections
and the hiding places,
it washes you into the open -
to the space of healing and love.
it's a river you must dare to ride
if you ever really want to live.
it begins with a tear,
your tasting of its salt,
and your trusting another to taste that salt with you.
only a whisper came out.
all the screaming inside of me,
and only a whisper came out -
barely showing you the depths -
but at least cracking the door.
i prayed you'd see the opening and enter.
i prayed you'd see me and trust.
In the corner
unsure i hesitate,
wanting to love you, i don't know how.
you leave me standing in the corner.
filling the corner with light and beckoning you closer,
picking it up
picking it up after you dropped it,
i held it for you over here -
your belief in yourself.
your trust in the process.
your acceptance of who you are.
your knowing of your beauty.
holding it and waiting, i smile your way and love you.
