Strong emotion grips sometimes

Sneaking up sans rhythm or rhymes

Feeling of empty deep in the soul

Longing to fill up a big empty hole


Regardless of study awareness grace

It comes to you fills up your space

Sometimes pointing to a specific cause

Sometimes from what once was


As you sit in sadness that is

Try sending away it’s not your biz

Forget it won’t happen can’t chase it away

Can’t rush ignore distract with play


Longing holds lessons pay attention

Comes a voice giving direction

Listen the whisper inside

The voice friend ally guide


Heed direction it asks you to take

Honor the message wrapped in heartache

Trust your reality go deep explore

Follow go deep it leads to a door


What sadness are you experiencing?

What is the voice inside the sadness saying about action you need to take or a relationship needing healing?
