I look behind and there you are
It is a safety measure, to check
the rearview mirror before changing lanes
It is no different for driving
or for a relationship
we must look back before moving forward safely
Will you pass me on the road?
Will you be at my next stop?
What I do know is time is taking us
We cannot stop the world from turning
There is safety knowing that you are there in my past forever that story will never change
And now you are someplace on the road, for how can you be not?
There is nothing else to do in life but live
we go forward into the mystery and create what will be
I guess that is enough
to love no matter if you are behind me or before me
I hope that our journeys cross again
for there is no other I, nor no other you
let us both enjoy the ride we are on for undoubtably this too shall pass….and if perchance we meet
we see us there and then, you beside me.
I am thinking a lot right now about letting go of attachments to outcomes, people, expectations, hopes, desires, and learning to just love NO MATTER WHAT. It is hard because I do not think that is the natural way of the human condition. I think we want safety in what we know, what we have done, what we remember, what we have been told, what we have been taught, and what we think should be. I am beginning to embrace that safety is acknowledging what is, and moving forward from there. This time will not come again and cannot come again. What are you going to do with this moment? Are you going to focus behind you or before you or right where you are?
I am letting go of the past, celebrating the now, and focusing forward…all the while loving myself along. I pray that you are too.
