Fear not for I have not forgotten you. Sometimes everyone needs a hand of faith to reach down to pick us up. A smile of hope to reset our outlook. A kind heart to hear our song. And I also know quite intimately that there are those of us who do not have that hand, that smile, that ear to help us. And for us we must learn to stand without human aid. When we suddenly become weak and can’t see the Truth for a moment it can be hard. Harder than we like.
Thats why I come here. I come to speak quietly in the darkness and to call bravely in the sun. I come to remind you that you are not alone. And in doing so I remind myself.
Loss is hard. Letting go is harder. Life is larger than all of us and surviving it sometimes seems an insurmountable task. If you’re feeling this. Again you are not alone.
But this is the time to forget all that. That’s right. Just take a breathe and let it go. Piece by piece. Inch by inch. And think of something lighter. Something beautiful. Something worth your laughter. A funny song. A slapstick comedy. A child’s laugh. Look at old pictures – not for the pain of what might be gone but for the joy of what was once something full in your life.
Grow in yourself. And know still…you are not alone.
It’s hard to do all that. It’s hard to live your life like there is no tomorrow. It’s hard to step back and remember that nothing you do here…nothing…will ever be so monumental that- in time- it won’t be forgotten. So why not live as if every day life could be forgotten and go seek it?
There will be time for mourning when you lie down to sleep. If you have the strength left. And I recommend you don’t. Live.
It’s late. I need sleep. But for those who know me I send you Hope. For those who love me I send you joy and for those who hate me I send you peace.
And for that one-no names here-I wish you happiness with all my heart.
Until next time…
