A Blessing for One Who is Alone
and you will learn to be your own shelter
Now the cold of winter and loneliness will sit deep in your bones
and you will be the fire, you will tend your own hearth
in the silence and the sacred stillness left behind.
You have been gifted with a doorway to a new life
as you step across this threshold, your strength and determination
your laughter, sunlight and song will be your companions
as you fully inhabit each day of your own life.
Treat yourself with respect, give the kindness to the One
who deserves it most: You. Precious, beautiful You.
Give the highest priority to self-care, to tenderness
gentleness and kindness that you truly need and deserve
and when frustration, difficulty, fear and loss
knock at your door, remember that they’ve come
to teach their lessons-
Learn them well.
Stormrider, you have learned to thrive in desperate places
to find light long after the candle has been blown out.
give yourself the gift of freedom today
and choose to love yourself, to BE acceptance, compassion
