My heart bursts open
as wide as the stars
just lying here
with you in my arms
your gentle breath
your soft soft skin
what worlds unfold
in that dream you are in?
Even awake, I cannot quite fathom
all the great mysteries you hold
…inside the self
that your life is unfolding
But you mirror to me
the simplest needs
to love, to touch, to play and be free
to be held when you cry, to ‘fight for what’s mine’
how beautiful you are..
Love’s most precious little star
It’s school holidays here and the change in rhythm has given me a chance to slow down a little and find some really tender moments with my kids… So that, instead of meeting on the surface of our lives, I can feel our deeper souls meeting…
It was one such moment that inspired this poem.
What about you, is there someone (or two) in your life who you’re just meeting on the surface? If your soul could speak to them, what would it say?
