My husband wrote this for me last night, so I thought I would share. I hope your Dr. King day is going well.
Are you lonely
When the clouds hang low in the sky?
The moon is hidden
The silence cloaks the chaos of the day
I think of you
All the miles I traveled
The years of trials
Just to find you
Could it be
that perfection lies in the imperfections
Of daily life?
On this tiny plot of land
We make our life day by day
Wondering if we matter
Wondering if anything matters
Wandering side by side
Through paths we can’t see or feel
Knowing that this is all there is.
That this is all there ever will be.
This could be enough.
This is enough.
And inside enough lies an ocean of freedom
Even if every day seems the same
Within each struggle, something of value
Knowing all the while
Knowing we need to know
Knowing we can never comprehend
Knowing the days are numbered
Knowing we are one in billions
Alone on this spinning rock
Helplessly watching as it winds its way down
Through the oft traveled road of the universe
But in this random moment
Here we are
