You Are Here

While great troubles rumble on the horizon
here is calm and peaceful
There’s love on tap
which I love to give back

And when I checked the map
that was the most beautiful part of all
and the big red arrow said

You are here
you are here and allowed 
to enjoy this moment

As fragile as a bubble
floating on the summer breeze
The preciousness of this kindness
is not lost on me

And I no longer need a map
that’s the most rewarding part of all
I tell myself, “It’s okay

You are here
you are here and allowed
to savour this moment…”

I really enjoyed this poem. Gives a peaceful feeling, allowing ourselves to relax and be present in the moment.
