She never knew that her words would heal the hearts of others

She never knew that they would matter

If you told her years ago that what she wrote would ease another's fears

Make them not feel so alone

She would never believe you

Even if you assured her that you knew it was true

She would not be able to grasp it

She always wrote for herself

Directly from her heart

The words pouring out onto the paper

She spoke of what she knew

What she learned

What she knew to be true

She had to show up on the page

She had to free the words from her mind

Releasing them into the universe

And here she stands today

Not keeping her words bottled up

Showing up here

Opening up

Inviting others in

Living, feeling, smiling
