For a Friend

searching for your home

you look at many houses

while all the time 

your true home lies within

 

rebuild the home inside you

carry your true home

inside your own heart

 

your body houses

your heart, mind, soul and spirit

be a sanctuary

for love

Cold

breathe out to let go

breathe in to open to life

breathe out to accept dying

 

a thin fragile thread

holds the world together now

as winter begins

 

take on challenges

winter says to all the trees

find courage to stand

 

cold chills the body

wind slows down the mind and steps

love sustains the heart
