Pollyanna is pensive

One of my beautiful and amazing friend-sisters wrote this poem.

On days like this, it sustains me. Bless you, Sherry.

In the moment of darkness,

When you forget who you are,

Unwrap the beauty of your breath

This is the gentle path to your heart

Feel the Love gently gift-wrapped in between each breath

That’s who you are,

That’s where you belong.

.

Breathe into the noises in your head,

Or outside,

Which tell you lies,

You are not this breath,

Faster or slower with fear,

You are not this breath,

Waiting to be acknowledged,

You are not this breath,

Gone when your ashes are one with the ocean and the earth,

.

You are the essence and the petals of the flower whispering “Love”.

And that always belongs.
