feeling something near.
Was it dream or a flicker of reality?
I then found on my bedside table
a simple index card with this written on it:
"Walk with me as my Beloved Companion.
Carry yourself as if you are
So in Love,
You Know Love Is
and in feeling it,
It's in my handwriting, but as so often happens
I don't remember writing it.
I know it was from a time last year,
while hospicing my beloved, blanket-bound Cimi-girl
(whose story is part of Training Two),
through a dark night of restlessness
(mine not hers).
Likely I was reaching for something to soothe
each of us.
It is a reminder for me
—especially as today is Good Friday--
that Love, being energy,
can be neither destroyed nor created,
It just is.
Waiting like gravity for
a heart's connection to make it visible.
Thank you to whatever magic brought this to my attention again this morning,
via a lost index card
scuttled under other items
on a bedside table.
"Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength,
Loving someone deeply gives you courage."
