My kids have flown the nest,
My husband is now my Ex,
My parents have gone,
My dog too.
My body is well,
My mind struggles some days,
I feel lots of sadness sometimes,
I use helping techniques and other ways,
To allow this to pass through me,
Like the clouds passing in the sky,
Bravely facing the impermanence.
We cannot experience one emotion without the flip side of another,
How else would we come to know happiness? Sadness?
Or any other emotion fully, for that matter?
No-thing and everything matters on this ground of understanding.
