Edge of Change
I sit on the edge
Of beginnings and endings
Wiping tears from my eyes
As pictures of memories flash through my mind
As pictures of what might be pop in my head.
Change fills me with a tender sadness
Gratitude so rich, so large it’s palpable and filling
And love for all those I’ve come to know.
The hugs goodbye are not nearly enough
To express how thankful I am for everyone.
In just an instant another year is gone
And with it all the joys, the smiles
All the tears and pain
Vanish in the blink of an eye.
Possibility replaces all that has happened,
Open space for all to come.
Still nostalgia remains,
Life remains as memories that call at times.
Life continues as an open road laid out before
Life exists as right now.
I find myself moving between all the ways
Life can be, searching for the balance
Again thanks to the beginning of spring I am reminded of beginnings and endings. The beginning of spring is the end of winter. So often these times of change comes with mixed emotions, sadness mixed with joy. One thing is for sure – change always comes. That is part of what it means to be a human being on this planet – to experience change. We can fight it or we can let go into it. It’s our choice.
How do you deal with change?
