The night filled with her
Struggles trying to understand
Eliminating the darkness
That scarred her heart.
It wakes with her and then
Tucks her in again.
The teddy bear does not keep
Her comforted, does not take
Away the fear that has grown to
Adult status in what seems a
Very short time tormenting her Inside
You don’t know if you can reach
Outside of yourself to speak what
Your inside is screaming “ I don’t
Know who I am” , “I don’t know
How to stand”. The pain of the
Does anyone hear her confusion,
Can someone interpret her
Silence translating the imprinted
Pain that has stained her open
Heart creating calloused arteries.
Listen, you will hear her.
Be still with her and you will feel her.
Let her tell her story in the way
She Can with her hand in yours
Witness who she was, who she
Is and what the pain of her fear
Wants to reveal about her future.
Be by her side, hoping, loving and
Connecting until she can
Recall who she truly is and who
She has always been.
Be there for her between her
Words as she speaks her healing
Bringing life back into her heart
Pumping richness, her
Courage and strength reviving
What she thought was lost.
Be there for her as she walks
Out of the forest into the
Expansiveness of reality tasting
The sweetness of hope in LOVE
