Love’s Return

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.
