POEM: the edge of knowing

There is a moment
right before awareness
an innocence poised
at the brink
at the edge
before tumbling over
into the chasm
of knowing

That fleeting second
before plummeting
becomes so precious
only after the fall
in retrospect

If only
that moment
could be so loved
without facing the depths

will be all right
in time

there is wisdom
and new joy
on the other side
of the challenge

there are reasons
to stand here and declare
that you will find the other side

you are worth it

Know that no matter what you face, you are not, never will be, alone.

Thank you Mervat...sometimes I can really sense it, and when that happens it is a great comfort. You are wonderful for reminding me :)
