Grief does not change you… It reveals you.
You dreamt of me
and wept for me
I was your greatest sorrow
and your highest passion
So boycott me
Don’t let me see where you’ve gone,
knowing all the while I’ll be lying
in your heart’s weary tide
It wasn’t mine, but I wanted it,
this pain, this forgotten dream in-between two seas,
where you are the continent
Sand, sky, swallow me
At night the waves just crash into me
and I let the silver stream of starlit beams
unfurl the wounds of my heart
So abandon me
Slip beneath the horizon
knowing all the while that you’ll rise
tomorrow and find me on the other side
In this round world of ours
as far as I can see
you’re right here with me
And so we let go
we take our leave from the tide’s eye
though the sand and stars are still etched with you and I
Bless you beautiful ones this New Moon in Cancer.
Step into the waters of your grief, this world’s grief. Wade if you can. The waters of the Earth contain the collective tears of our Mothers and Fathers, Sisters, Brothers and Ancestors. We grieve for those who could not.
We shed these tears to nourish the soil of new life.
