Maybe beginning perhaps an end
Life is relentless at every bend
Surprise as we pretend command
Draw cards can’t predict the hand

Never expected to feel this depth
Profound emotion draining strength
Changing accepting sense of fate
Learning perspective value of mate

You honored this young man
Cavalierly dismissed your plan
Realize all I did not see
In replay give more of me

Tell myself I’ll be OK
Through trauma return to everyday
In living lessons come
At the bone know the world from

A new place on sacred earth
Broader vista tolerance mirth
Loved you dear one more than you know
Connected forever souls dance so

Reflected and realized what you were blind to?

What lessons and are you more awake, conscious, mindful?
