This morning, after several days of feeling quite good and strong, I experienced a mini-meltdown. I don’t know where the feelings came from, but there was grief and some immature thoughts. Then I remembered a dark time from many years ago when a poem came. I would like to share it with you today.
Love’s Return As your soul is darkened By feelings of hurt and hate May you know that the strength of your hate Measures your capacity to love The tears of your loneliness Are the living waters With which you will comfort those in need The broken circles of relationships ending Will be the bond of friendships yet to be And from the remembrance of your hurts You will learn to heal.
