The water ripples

My heart beats in time

The wind pulls my breath out

Slow clamy sea salt

Carressses my lips

I feel you deep inside

Calming my nervous thoughts to silence

You are here with me

Blinded before by the noise of life

I couldn’t spot you holding me up

When I couldn’t hold myself

Death talking to me

Telling me to just let go

But there you were

Waiting for my chatter to stop

Telling me to hold on

Keep being strong

In all your subtle signs

Stopping my lonely tears unexpected

A warms summers heat

On a rainy day

Keeping me alive

Bringing me to the peace of life

I can come in many labels, many boxes, a divorcee, survivor, traveler, writer, optimist. But these labels only limit me to who I am at this point in time. But as you will read on my blog, I am my journey. I hope you will enjoy walking this path with me.
