Oh Cathie

Oh Cathie
my faithful respondent
thank you so much
for accepting my dive
into deep grief

I believe we have to take
that plunge to the bottom
of the pond of despair
before taking breath again

Coming back to the surface
is no easy task
but one that has to undertaken
to see the sun arise
on a new and bright day

Go back mindfully
to your loss
a bit at a time
treasure what you had
there in that place

Try to create
a new space
for the blessings of life
to happen again!
