Just when I think the last wave has receded and maybe there won’t be another
When it seems I’ve regained my balance and am once again standing on solid ground
Another one comes crashing in
Bringing with it more tears
Of anguish, loss and regret
An ache, a longing deep in my heart
For something that was here
But is now gone.
And questions, so many questions!
Who am I without this thing
Do I still have value
Do I still matter
What will I do
How will I know
Will someone tell me
Please tell me!
Worn out by the frenzied search for answers
Left with no choice but to feel what is here in this body
There comes a tender, gentle knowing
That this is where I belong
I am home
I am this tender, gentle, soft, aching, loving heart.
