We were on a path,
Safe and predictable.
You left in a hurry,
With excitement and expectation.
I followed you,
Scared you may fall.
We raced together.
I tried to slow you down at first,
Battling thoughts in my head.
Do I stop you?
Do I put you back on the path of all known things
Where the familiar would comfort my fear,
Or do I run with you?
You just seemed to know that something wonderful beckoned,
the magic of you racing to uncover it, forced it to emerge into the sun
As though it could sense your arrival, all with perfect divine timing,
As you chose to listen to your inner being,
You were set free.
Free to explore.
Free to become the explorer you were born to be.
You would follow your heart,
And I would follow you.
What we found was what the universe wishes for us all,
To see life from a new perspective.
To find freedom.
To feel adventurous.
We were not bound to the rules
Of a place we didn’t fit in.
We embraced this journey,
Each step creating a new path in perfect harmony with our unique spirit.
We sat down together
And rocked back and forth,
Listening to the water flowing by.
The air around us was cold,
But we were warm and cozy like two kittens snuggled by a fire.
You were happy.
You were smiling.
You didn’t need to follow an old path through a familiar place.
You needed to be free to run and seek.
To lead us
To the beauty only you could find.
May I always be witness to the glorious life that unfolds around you,
As you create your own roads in this spectacular world.
It is ready for change.
