Shadows and Hope
Shadows of the past move from my head and settle heavily in my heart and stomach. It’s all gone now.
I’m just really not sure what to do with it.
And it sends my mind full circle – to the fact that my future is so unknown.
And the now that I have and love and work so hard for. The babies that scream and the checks that bounce and the wallets that empty and the dishes that dirty and the parents that age and the sisters that move away.
It’s all so short. I want to reach out and grab the shadows – make them come back and stay and we can all finish strong together. Please?
I’m sad. And that’s okay.
And how to end these dancing shadow words without sadness?
and run some miles
and live with all the Hope that is in me.
And someday....someday. (Oh, I can't wait!)
Yes, my soul, find rest in God;
my hope comes from him.
