Dear child

It hurts
I know this fact
Your gentle heart 
It breaks
'Tis true...
But know
Little love bug 
This heartbreak
Is not your first
And it certainly
Will not be your last
So hold on tight
To hope
And cry
If you must
Your tears
Do not fall
In vain-
Like the sun
Comes out again,
After the rain
So shall
The laughter return
And once the tears
Have dried
New paths will open up
New roads await
Adventure on!
It is okay
To be afraid
But hold high 
Your head
And take a breath
And step on
Move on
Live on...
This is just a moment
It storms for now
It is a moment
This too...
Shall pass
Hold on
A moment more
It will pass-

Meaning of life-

Love everything
Own nothing

My heart and I

We had a heart to heart
My heart and I
It spoke and I listened
It felt and I sensed it
It broke and I held it
It scolded and I accepted
It showed me and I saw
It's quite a remarkable thing
This heart of mine
And then my ego
That shadowy deceiver
What a con!
So I took an eraser
And smudged him out
My sexy critic
Inner critic to be exact
Always whispering
In my ear
Suffocating that poor heart
Thanks for sharing
Now shoo!
Go away.
Hush now.
Be silent please...
My dear sweet heart 
Has something to say
So back again to my heart
To have another
Heart to heart
It is a remarkable thing
This heart of mine
Fills me with awe and wonder
So vast
So sublime
In it I see
The universe
Do I contain it?
Or does it contain me?
This heart
Which holds
If I stayed there a day
A years knowledge 
Would I gain...
Ahhh yes presence
With this heart
And suddenly
The skies clear
And the song of my soul breaks forth
And what a song
And what wisdom
I am breathless
It all becomes clear
What a fool 
It made of me
This ego
Such deceit
Ludicrous bullshit!
And still
I have not the heart
To hate it
Or anything at all
Such a wonderfully 
Remarkable thing!
This heart 
Of mine
All forgiven
All forgotten
It knows hurt
It knows pain
It knows love
This heart of mine
Knows them all
Does it hold me?
Or do I...
Hold my heart
Now that's a thought
A good conversation
One that requires 
Heart to heart
My heart and I

After the rain

It washed over me
The sorrow last night
Like floodgates opened
The dam gave out
I was ready for it
It was needed
It was expected
It was not easy
And yes...
This time-
I welcomed it
I sat with it
I weathered it
And then
Nor sad
Blissful sleep took over
I awoke 
Somewhat foggy
"We must put ourselves in the way of annihilation... Over and over again. Only then can we expose what is indestructible in us- (Pema Chodron)"
I begin to see them
My indestructible parts
How wonderful that those are the same parts
I love the most about me-
What a discovery
That which I love is indestructible 
That which cannot be destroyed
And love shall find me
All that was lost
That I mistook for love
Was not
Love cannot be destroyed
Love cannot be lost
I am love
And LOVE shall find me
After the rain...


There are some paths
We must walk alone
The journey is ours
The experience too
We have the courage
And wisdom too
It's fear that kicks in
And anger 
And then
We resist
What must be
What cannot be changed
Fear fights
Acceptance strengthens
Fear says "NO!"
Acceptance says " is what it is..."
Wisdom is accepting
Everything- including the fear and the anger...
Acceptance is loving ourselves
Through it all
And then alone isn't a burden
We are all alone 
After all
We are all alone together-

If I knew why
I'd tell you too...
I thought of you
In the darkness 
I thought of you
In the light...
I missed you by day
I missed you by night
I remembered our walks
In the starlight-
"I still love you like crazy"
He said...
And my heart smiled
Because I know
I love him too-
