inspired by a post from Lissa Rivero Sanders
Dedicated to all the wise women & men who offered their teachings, whether or not I accepted.
Wise, it is true,
we rush to take our place.
We oft forget to hold the space
Wise, it appears
we are cold and hard as steel,
And we speak but do not feel
We can't wait to dance away.
We will always come back to hear you.
Wise, it does seem
that as we strive and fret
We rush courtesy and forget
As we find our path
through the changes of each day,
It is easy to dismiss the way
it's always been.
We are a little envious because we know
we are building on the foundation you have created.
Trust us, as we trust you.
Believe, and we'll come through.
For it is your world too,
While you are here.
We will let you go grudgingly.
And through the cycles of life,
through the dance of time and space,
The bridge we build together will always be a place
Of love and honor.
Patience and Kindness.
Integrity and Strength.
i hope you have a great day!
