Part of me

We tried

But in the end our hearts could not meet

And even though we longed

For the embrace of each other

Lately it is seeming that it is not meant to be

And all my struggle with wanting more

Is ending as I find the courage to seek the light

Of a new shore

Finding a place just to embrace it all

This past I am powerless ever to change

And maybe this is enough for me

Breath of wind on bare cheek

Soft feel of my dog’s fur

Under open hand

And memory upon memory

Of what was

And was not yet to be

Setting me free

Leaving me be

Dreaming me onward

To a present where

Finally

I find the strength

To move on

Surrendering nothing

Taking it all

Embodying the song

Acknowledging it all

As part of me
