Stepping back to really see
all the forest, not just one tree.
All your memories without the fears,
all the smiles, not just the tears.

Feeling feelings once again,
feeling love without the shame,
feeling grace when you hear a name,
blessing the face that looks like them.

Laughing deeply, from your soul,
happiness your only goal.
Giving and taking with gentle care,
feeling the joy of something to share.

Standing on the very same ledge,
knowing you’ll never go over the edge.
Accepting that the past is past
and that you are present at last, at last.
