Speak of Love
Speak of love
Speak of the moments your heart crushes with tears,
when a slip in time
finds you content and in a rare good place
where the harsh imploding of sadness
dissipates, just for a second.
And the world sparkles
Speak of the mannerisms
of people you admire.
Those unique blessings
bestowed solely upon each of us
as individual gifts, only we know how to give
naturally and unknowingly.
Speak of the breaking pain
that gives way to simple longing.
The pain of loneliness and the urge to connect
with others from across this land
that imprisons us in our own worlds.
Our bodies, our minds, our rollercoasters.
Speak of the reasons you have…
To throw off your bed warmth
and step into the cold aching day
That enduring, yet perhaps, small hope
that comfort will find your soul today
Speak of laughter.
The moments you chuckle when the
giggle rises up from the gurgle of your throat
and resonates behind your cheeks,
into your belly, becoming your being
Speak of your tears.
So many and rich with life
Let them fall, vulnerably and with abandon
Weep from the earth, up through your feet
through every nerve and cell, wailing
Speak of your life and hear yourself.
How you are still here and have created so much
Where and what you have been
and how you will reinvent your story tomorrow
Speak of love.
For when the waves make their final break
you will know,
that you were wrapped up,
in life’s greatest lesson
