Change

We say we want a miracle

But when it comes

Are we prepared for it?

Dear One,

When newness comes

Pinch yourself

Stare at it in disbelief

Then in awe

Take it in

This new gift

So fragile

You need to hold it

With the delicacy of a new mother

For at first

Change can’t even

Hold its own head up

So you hold it

Nurse it

Nurse the new life you have been given

Stare at every inch of it

Until you have it memorized

Stay up in the night

Feeding its requirements

Wake up in the morning thankful

Running

Just to be with it

Dear One,

Of course

You deserve a second chance

Life does not have to be expected

Anything you want can be yours

Just make sure you don’t miss

The very thing

You have always been looking for

A miracle

May come quietly

To see if you are ready

Listen for her sweet soft cries

And then believe and nurture her.

    Jennifer–when I read you, I have such a feeling of peace in my chest. What you translate into words goes beyond feeling, and I am so glad you are back at it again. I have missed your words.

    Wow! I haven’t been on the computer in quite a while and the first thing I see is a fabulous message about Change. Love it, embrace it, can’t wait for it. I am sure when Change comes I am going to jump on its head and dance like a dervish until I am breathless – Which will be NEVER.
    Forever marvel at new discoveries, endless possibilities, evolving personalities! whoof!
    We are so awesome. YOU are so awesome. Love You.
