Are you hearing footsteps
In your core
Are they pounding out your fear
Do you listen
Where does it come
And what is it really.

Your heart is awakening
Possibly from many years
Or just a few minutes ago.
Do you remember, did it hurt
Or was the laughter and joy
So enlivening that life
Called you to be a part
Of your own.

Pay attention
To the pattern
Of your heart knocking
To come on home
Taking your hand
Offering a path to love.

Grab it through the murky
Place you cannot see
Feel care touching you
It will guide as you surrender
Into your nature of acceptance
Welcoming sharing in
discerning the face of
love.
