I have had to cut many squares
From my patchwork quilt of people,
Who I thought sewed only love and light
Into my life.
There is no anger in my heart.
Forgiveness is part of growth.
My life began anew
When I learned the art of letting go
And that I cannot ration
My self respect and self compassion.
I see things now with clear, open eyes
As I re-asses and realize:
What must go will fall away
What really matters will remain.
You will not find meaningful relationships
On a one way street.
Make room in your life to meet
Who was meant to be.
Are often a manifestation
Of love and connection.
An intentional celebration
Of the unique relationships
That impacted me
On this beautiful journey, that is life.
