All That is Awoken
Let the past be still now
Let all that is woken be comforted
Let all that is wounded and broken find peace
Let all the hurting memories be healed
Or held at least and blessed in solitude
May they return to where they belong now
Leaving new awareness
Of ground gained
Past returned to its place
And put to rest now.
Peace to all
And light to the future
Wrapped in tenderness
Immersed in mercy.
For this is the only way to live in a physically pain-filled life, looking forward, not back, looking to love.
