Sweet, sweet heart
My own sweet heart
Deep in meditation, breathing in the wonderful moment; breath so deep, and sweet, and slow - smiling and easing - in one with the moment; and in the still moment, beneath the rise and swell of the breath: the gentle upward pull of my own sweet heart, soft beating in my chest.
Thank you, dear heart, for being so steady: for never once giving up, no matter how my head may weep and scream despair - thank you, true heart, for holding faith and holding fast when I could not - thank you, sweet heart, for this steady gift of life and love, through thick and thin, no matter what.
Thank you, sweet, sweet heart ❤️
