To Resilience

Standard

Dear Resilience,
You’ve always shown up when I needed you.
You always helped me to get through.
I need you to be here now,
to be with me in full force.
Resilience, my friend,
show me how to make it through this.
Last year, when he said it was over,
you showed up
and helped me survive.
When I was a puddle on the floor,
you came to me and said,
Eat. Sleep. Meditate. Cry.
Take a walk.  Take a bath.
Call a friend. Call on God.

Day after day
you helped me live through
heartbreak, betrayal and loss.
You helped me make it through one dark year.
Now Resilience,
I want you to show me
my deeper resourcefulness.
I want you to help me connect
to the best part of myself
and stay connected.
I want to move forward,
stand strong,
provide for myself and my kids.
Can I trust in you to be there for me?
You’ve always helped me in the past.
Can I trust in you now?

Hopefully yours,

Lorien
