There’s nothing quite like receiving a stunning chef’s knife from a dear friend. Many, many thanks.
When will you learn that it’s possible
to put too much faith in your struggle?
What happened, that made pain the only thing
that the lungs of your soul recognize as air?
You can swim all day against the current
and still find yourself no closer to shore.
the walls of this humble home
held so much more than just a roof.
When manna refuses to fall from heaven
we may find ourselves left with no other option
but to wring it from the earth below our feet.
I’ve come to realize
that maybe I won’t ever understand
all the reasons why you did
what you did.
But I’ve also grown to realize
that maybe that’s ok.
For the many moments
whose magic meant more
than you will ever know.
