My Dearly Beloved,
In accepting you,
Exactly as you are—no
More, no less susceptible to suffering
I am respectfully and
Letting you go.
I cannot suffer for you
Suffering with you
Causing me more pain
Than I know
What to do with…I don’t know
How to help you anymore.
Your own unwillingness to let go
Your own broken heart is breaking mine.
If only you could see in yourself as I see you.
Beautiful. Kind. Strong.
If only you could see in me as I do…your projections are but a dim light
Cast on who I truly am inside; and please understand–
I want to shine!
Inside and out I want to shine with
A warm glow for all to see!
Maybe one day you too will see…and glow.
Until then, I will keep you safely in my prayers right where you belong.
To be continued…
Thank you for reading.
