Note to Self (135) Deliverance

Someone lurks in the dark and I wait for a light to appear and guide me away from this place.

I breathe hard and expect to be delivered from the pain I’ve carried for too long. It’s time for change. It’s time for forgiveness.

I extend my hand as I try to catch the shadow that now stands a few feet ahead of me. I see the hint of a smile, then a stare that speaks more than words. I’m welcome here. I can find peace here.

I step forward and grab the fingers of the shadow like a child would grab his mother’s hand, and we start walking together toward the light I see blinking on the horizon.

It’s going to be a long journey, but I’m ready for the ride. I leave the past behind, all the memories, all the sorrow and the sadness are gone.

I am free.

    Ooh! I like that. Very sweet and very moving.
    How have you been, J.? It’s been too long. I hope life has been treating you well. I apologize for not coming around as often as I used to. *slaps hand*
