in between

She wanted to make a wish

Closing her eyes

Transporting herself to a different time

Another moment

When things were more settled

Her heals dug firmly in the ground

But she knew herself better

She knew that her wishes were only that, wishes

She knew she would have to go through the struggle

Take the difficult path

It was always that way with her

And she knew that

Along her journey she learned so much

Patience, kindness, love

Showing up and wearing her heart on her sleeve

She learned about being vulnerable

And saying she knew she just needed kindness

She learned how to speak from her heart

And now she stands in limbo

With half her life here

And the other half there

Dancing between the two

Placing her things gently

Not wanting to disrupt the flow of life

She knows how to blend into the background

She knows how to disappear

But this time things are different

He wants to know how she is feeling

He doesn't want to see her cry

He wants them both to be happy

She is no longer dancing alone

She no longer has to step into the darkness

Afraid of what will be waiting for her when she turns on the light

She comes home to someone

Who loves her and holds her close

And together they step into the future
