You are so lovable


You are so lovable

As I sit here in the dark of morning

Please remember

Whatever you didn’t get done

doesn’t matter

what matters is that you woke up today

breath in lungs

with the sweet truth that

you matter

we need you

and still

we need you to take it easy

hone your skills in


love the “no” as we move into

can you

will you

you’re invited

say yes to quiet



“Is this what I really want?”

see a tree

really see a tree

and wonder

how it keeps going

roots down drinking

even sometimes bumping up sidewalks

in the name of growth

leaves change, shed and hide

waiting for a season to call them forth

take it easy now

wait for your season

time for the wintering

and the remembering
