Let the moments go
With their supposed importance
Their seeming need to be needed

You will feel discomfort
Pain, sadness, loss, remorse
As you move through this world

Feel it and live it
It is your life, moment by moment
For that time, it is you

It would be wrong to try to pass
By these cracks and breaks
Without making them your own

To lie and say all is good
All the time
Never a tear

But never think that all you are
Is the pain or the shame
The sad song in your head

These are just parts of your time
Some can’t be kept at bay
But never hold on to them

When their time to leave comes
Allow them to fade
So again you can feel the peace

Pause and wonder
Dream and sigh
With calm and reassurance
