There will come a day

There will come a day

When you heart no longer feels

As though the brace around it

That contracted

Will squeeze all the life and breath out of you

There will come a day when

The struggle to hold in all those tears

Has released with the shedding

And the flood has unleashed

All the love and longing of your soul

Now become a free river

To carry you forward

There will come a day

When you finally realise

That nothing can last forever

And that any gift you are given

Is only ever on given on loan

There will come a day

When you surrender to life

And a deeper acceptance of impermanence will teach you

To find such joy

In the naked pregnant simplicity

Of this present moment

There will come a time

When soul shrouds and mists clear

Revealing

Illusions or misconceptions obscured before

There will come a day

When you find your heart leaping

As it witnesses the early dawn of the sun

Brimming with love and joy and hope

At the singing of a bird

As it it cries out its morning chorus

There will come a day when the pain of loss

Will have deepened and transformed you

And released a kernal of gratitude

For being able to bear it all

And stay alive

There will come a day

When you will realise that

Even though your heart has suffered

You will want to open it again

There will come a day when

Finally

That awful pain

You fully surrendered to

Finally lets you go
