A NEW BEGINING

Along comes a man
He touches me deeply
That spot in my soul..
Making me smile..
Making me whole..
Tossing me into confusion..
A sea of images..past present and future
This sea is churning..
the waves pull me down..surround me with fear
Desperately reaching out..to whoever is there..
This man, takes my hand
Leads me ashore..
Gently he soothes me..with soft whispered words.
My heart awakens from its pain induced slumber
Softly it whispers..
Barely I listen..hearing the words..
I push past the monster
with words chosen with care
Telling him bits of my fear
Needing to see the path he will choose..
Wondering if maybe..this time..I won't lose
Sitting here listening as he responds..
His words fill me..
The path he has chosen..is one beside me
Not pushing me forward..nor letting me step back..
Supporting me..right where I stand
Accepting my fears..
As he listens with care..to each word I speak
Something awakens..deep in my soul..
I sit and ponder..which way I should go
Remembering life's lesson, learned in the past
My heart, sights the future..of what could be
So I sit..trembling on the edge
Knowing already..the course is set
Anger finally comes..healing the past..
Refusing to deny..what's in my heart
refusal to destroy that which I am
I take that step..the man takes my hand..
Together we begin
a journey anew
