I asked my Soul what she needed.
Rest, she said.
Enjoyment, she said.
Nourishment, she said.
Sleep, she said.
Stretching, she said.
Breathing, she said.
Nothingness, she said.
And so, I listened.
I listened with every fiber of my being.
I listened with all my senses.
I listened deep into the well of my heart.
I whispered, I hear your sorrow and burnout.
I whispered, I see your weary and tired.
I whispered, I honor you.
I whispered, we’ll get through this all together.
And so, I re-membered my parts and my inner landscape.
I put the pieces of my inner being back together.
I stand beside you, hand-in-hand; I showed her.
I followed through with my intention.
I’m with you, I shared.
I’ll meet you where you are.
And we’ll walk this path together.
