There was a place, there was a time, where place and time had no meaning.
There was a time you beamed a smile, during your quiet and peaceful dreaming.
I love those times, the peace and quiet
A time to unwind my mind
And lay it all bare, from hope to despair,
And ask for healing and grace to be kind.
Because self-compassion is key to accepting it all.
To living a wonderful life,
That along with kindness to others,
The tenants of a true and wonderful wife.
So why do I sit here, unshevelled, unkempt,
Twisted by my own inner turmoil?
A bitter seed has been sown inside,
And it’s intoxicating my soul gardens soil.
I toil and graft to tend to my plot,
and serve the family with devotion.
To cultivate patience and unconditional love,
and not get overrun by emotion.
And gradually I increase my capacity for calm,
And become little by little more en-peacened.
The effort is worth it and begins to pay off,
when connection to you and myself is deepened.
And so my love, when you fall asleep,
This time is as precious as any.
An essential time to recharge our batteries,
Is worth absolutely every penny.
