With Ease

I walked along fields of lavender and sought only relief from all that life offered me in times of trouble; I never knew how sweet life could be. I wear scars of beauty and inside my soul resides less pain than I was enveloped in so many years ago. Now I am caught in between happiness and serenity. As I pondered on whether or not my eyes should seek forgiveness, I saw only pardon for the hurt she caused before she died. I was deaf; now I hear her laughter in the December breeze. Frozen from the remembrance of her smile and melting into thoughts of how her voice reminded me of picnics in July. Her and I, strolling along shores of love together. Remembering Sunday mornings with coffee and laughter. I am finally released from that torment. Finally free from the anguish she fought so hard not to bestow onto me. love brings forgiveness as I break free from distress- immune to her death I am no longer suffering in silence. I wear hope on my sleeves and faith liberated me from my demons. Thank you, Lord, for unleashing my dread and whispering it into the winds of yesterday. Willows wept when she died; now I wipe my eyes using tissues of assurance. I hold conviction that my thoughts and actions must reveal the truth of who I truly am. A genuine soul reaching for better days. A compassionate heart that sees empathy whenever needed. For happiness has been found and I have been redeemed. I love myself; adore my certitude and reliance on all things that bestow trust. Sure, I miss her- I used to feel her sorrow trying to fall asleep at night. Now I only feel her soft presence of grace and reprieve from the loss of her gentle heart. suffering no more when I feel her in the breeze- joy has bestowed hope June 25, 2019 Hey, Write a Happy Haibun Caren Krutsinger
