Dear Universe ( A Poem),
I leave to you,
the largely fabled
“Wedding Day” I dreamt of my entire young life
that I pried from my own fingers.
I’ve given that dream up now to focus on better,
more important things.
Because I realize that getting married
involves only the devoted love of two individuals,
a certificate and an officiant to make it legal, and
Because I realize that the Powers That Be ask us to give away the things
that we do not need
in order to
bless us with those that we do.
I also leave you my wish
for my own house;
The sarcastic smirk I offered every time
I thought of that White Picket Fence that may come with it.
I withhold any and all animals that you may have thought
This wish was sent with a self-addressed envelope
just in case there comes a time
in the future
when my fiancé and I can afford a place of our own
to leave the children we’d like to have.
And with the defiance that you gave me,
the passion, wisdom, open-mindedness and
I will be keeping my dream-to-be-fulfilled of teaching
Of becoming a mother in some sense of the word
Of loving with my entire heart no matter how many times it gets broken
Of listening to music because it’s what moves my blood through my veins
Of believing that we have the power to heal with our very thoughts
As long as those thoughts are loud, strong, and hold conviction
Of teaching others to laugh and love when they least want to
Because I am blessed, with all that I have been given
with all that I have willingly and begrudgingly at times given up
in order to keep moving toward what awaits.
I am blessed.
I am thankful, grateful and hopeful
that even though I have released some of my dreams to you, Universe
that in some way, at some time
they will come back;
They will be reincarnated –
they will live on in the life energy of something else
that I will be just as blessed to have.
With Love Always,
