They came unexpectedly,
pouring out from me as I made breakfast this morning.
Were these tears releasing all the would haves…
could haves… should haves… the what ifs?
Were these tears unraveling all of the neatly wrapped, tightly tied,
and boxed up fears and doubts
that have been stored away all these years?
Could these be the tears of wanting to change decisions that were made, or to have a second chance at the ones that were not.
These tears brought a sense of awareness, and release.
A ray of light within my soul.
A lightness within my being.
