Mindfulness


My legs spasm with pain.

I struggle to sleep.

I talk to my pain,

Like a mother to her child.

You are my body.

I hear your agony.

My heart fills with compassion.

My dear one, I am here for you.

You don’t have to scream.

I am here for you.

You are not my enemy.

I am here for you.

You need my attention.

I am here for you.

You are my pain.

I will heed your calls.

I will tend to you kindly.

You are a part of me,

As are my eyes, my lungs, my heart.

You are my precious pain

And I am here for you.
