A stranger called on me today she said she'd heard my 'plea',
To have someone to hold me close, to guide and comfort me.
Her name she didn't let me know, she said as I 'moved on'
That I would know, 'within' myself,
That's where 'she' had come from.
She told me:-
"It's alright to cry, to unleash all your fears,
You cannot banish years of hell, without releasing tears.
"You have a right to 'find' yourself, let go of guilt and shame,
To feel the comfort of 'safe' touch - break free from all your pain."
I know her as my ally now, and when I cannot cope,
I call the name I found 'within' - her name I know is
1.) My kids
2.) Fresh salmon
3.) The pond lily blooms
5.) Ornamental Horticulture
6.) Great friends
7.) Herbs in the garden
8.) New tarot decks
9.) Not having to go to the laundromat
10.) Sunshine breaking through the clouds
