Strong emotion grips sometimes
Sneaks up no rhythm or rhymes
Feeling empty deep in soul
Longing to fill an empty hole

Regardless of wisdom awareness grace
It shows up fills your space
Sometimes a specific cause
Sometimes from what once was

Sitting in sadness that is
Try sending away it’s not your biz
It won’t happen can’t chase away
Can’t rush ignore distract with play

Longing holds lessons pay attention
Its voice is giving direction
Listen to whispers inside
As a friend ally and guide

Heed direction it wants to take
Honor the message of your heartache
Trust the reality go deep explore
Follow as it leads to a door

What sadness are you experiencing?

What is the voice saying about something that needs doing or a relationship needing healing?
