I am trying, oh I am trying,

To hold both the bitter and the sweet

Familiarizing my heart to nostalgic pulls

Learning to honor my instinct to retreat.

I am accepting with an open heart,

Truths that are clear and those yet untold

Bending softly to a future still foggy ahead

Trusting more in what my heart already knows.

I am befriending my sense of intuition

Listening to the quiet song that souls sing

Trading in the harsher edges of practicality

For the softer reassurances of peace.
