Moment by Moment
This has always been the place I have run to...from pessimism, from loneliness, from sadness, from stress, from pain, from insecurity, from chaos, from fear, from worry. I know that in years past I have often come here alone. But your life and mine intersect here today, and I stop running. This is where I realize I am safe. The world can continue to spin faster, coming undone with each turn, but here I will not take notice. Here I will feel the water, the breeze, the touch of your hand and I will breathe deeply, deeper than I have in months. Here I will look at you, see you smile, and know that you are happy. Living in the moment, you are happy, safe, fulfilled. At peace.
So I join you here, in the here and now. Today. Tomorrow. Always. My heart unbinds and I am transformed. Imagine that you and I are sitting on the dock together at camp. We’re right at the end of it, dangling our legs over the edge. As the breeze picks up, I inch closer to you. You take my hand, and I know what’s true. You have always loved me, and all that binds us will never fade away. I will forever feel safe and fulfilled because even when I am alone on this dock, I know I am never without you. Here I will always be...at peace. Taking things moment by moment.
