When you knew I was ready,

you reached down from the stars

and placed my heart

back into a sacred space within me.


I heard you quietly say –

“I have to leave, you need to let me go.”

Your voice lovingly whispered in my ear

You’ll be okay –

I’m just a promise away

because you know …

‘I’ve got you babe’ is forever”
