sacred spaces

It was the small spaces she had to carve out

The ones specifically meant for herself

A trip to the coffee shop

A stroll around the pond

A tiny alter deep inside her closet

It was these sacred spaces that she needed

To keep herself aligned

To continue moving forward

Merging together with another requires some thought

Care and attention to detail

The journey of each others hearts cannot be lost

They must be taken into deep consideration

She knew she had to create these spaces for herself

There are some things she cannot compromise on

And although he might not understand it

He respects this sacred ground

He is happy to see her smiling

Dancing around the room as if she were a child

This brings delight to both of them

As together they each soak in their own sacred space
