If I accompany you

will we go to where love opens us

like flowers in the sun

where veils lift and we can see

the beauty of living, of breathing

of listening always to our hearts

Will we move as one towards who we are

without tripping over yesterdays

or the fears or feelings we were taught

that complicate the simple wonder of being here?

Can we ignore the voices

telling us we are not as good as

or that deserving is something you earn

Can we forever drop the belief

that keeping busy is the answer and rather

in the manner of all small beautiful things

just be

I hear your ‘yes’ so I will accompany you

just one thing more . . .

can we dance instead of walk?

    Poignant words. Dancing seems far more appealing that walking … now where are my dancing shoes? :)
