Poems from the Heart

by Mary Griffith

Dragonfly

She is golden like the sunshine
Dragonflies whisper in time

To her movements of the earth dance
She speaks to the moon with a glance
She speaks to the moon with a glance

There is somewhere deep inside your heart
Tears flow an ocean wave

Let it ride on all the way to shore
You’re safe in the harbor of love
You’re safe in the harbor of love

I Let You Go with Love

I let you go with love
I can no longer worry about you
Are you happy?
Are you sad?

I let you go with love
I can’t make you well
I am not the answer to your questions
I can’t stay home from school/work/life anymore

I let you go with love
My heart aching does not help you or me
My back breaking under the pressure to help you is futile
Pretending I’m not angry creates tension

I let you go with love
Because when you shine, it’s all about you
When you’re hurting, it’s all about you
You can live your life and I will live mine

I let you go with love
Because it’s time to do so, if not now, when?
When can I begin to feel free, to feel love
To just be me

I let you go with love
Then maybe I can see you for who you are
Appreciate your beauty, appreciate your love
Without needing it so desperately

Walk Instead

Give up the fight, lay down my flag of self-righteousness
Surrender, stop marching, walk instead

Don’t worry about tomorrow, live today, be in the present
Receive this gift without guilt or conditions

Decide what I want to do and do it
Come from my own heart, not someone else’s

Let fears wash away like dirt underneath a shower head
Use a loofa or soft cloth instead of a harsh brush

Be gentle with myself, dry under the sun
Feel the warmth embrace and nourish me

Drink in fresh water, drink in the beauty of nature
Feed my body, move my body, rest my body, love my body

Decide to say no, decide to say yes
Decide to not decide, no pressure

Treasure each breath, each song along my path
Sing from my heart, be a part of what is real

Feel, heal, kneel at the feet of the Great Mystery which is
All life, all love, all one, the sun, the moon, the stars, Mother Earth

Father Sky rains down on me to cleanse
To nurture, to feed, to grow, I know what is right

Give up the fight, lay down my flag of self-righteousness
Surrender, stop marching, walk instead
