TENDER TOUCH

Been brave, not heroic,
Been positive, not unrealistic.
Been calm, not in denial.
Yet slightly objective
And at a safe distance.

Dawn offered gentle, healing touch.
All muscles deeply relaxed. Deep 
Sigh, connecting to inner being. 
Heart opens and expands.
Eyes glistening with tears. 

Compassion and tender support
From within; bodily knowing and 
Empathy. Oh, I am wounded; 
I hurt; part of me is missing and lost.

More closely attuned 
within this experience,
I accompany myself,
Hold my own hand,
Comfort and attend.
