There Comes A Time

I saved this poem several years ago. I have no idea where it comes from or who wrote it, or even if I wrote it (hardly likely!), but it resonated with me then. And it helped bring some peace when I needed it. Perhaps it can help someone else now.

There comes a time.
A time when what we know changes.
When what we want doesn’t match what changes.
A time when our hearts are never to be the same.

There comes a time.
A time when thoughts must turn toward
a future so different than before,
A time when a new understanding comes into being.

There comes a time.
A time when hearts redirect and grieve.
And rejoice even while breaking.
A time when rejoicing is more beautiful than ever before.

There comes a time.
A time when it becomes ok to let go,
not of the person, the spirit, the heart. No.
A time that comes when it’s time to celebrate what still is.

There comes a time.
A time when blessings outweigh the dark
and outweigh the grief and loss.
A time when celebrating what still “is” is an amazing rejuvenation of self.

There comes a time.

Carry on.
