the sky bears witness to your sorrow;
I am big enough to hold you.
tired of pretending ~
no need to try so hard.
let the fullness of the earth enfold you;
you are here. you belong.
tired to the bones of burdens ~
no need to carry them now.
let the weight tumble down;
I am strong enough to hold it.
lilies bloom bright beneath the sun,
wind blows fresh into your lungs.
stand on the edge of the world ~
walk out. do not be afraid to hope
here, beloved, take my hand.
together we’ll go.
I am love enough to hold us.
