Everything

Another old one I finally let go of. Sometimes it seems I’m doing nothing else, but well.. Another weight lifted off my shoulders: check! I feel a spring in my step 🙂 

How dare you come back
and say lightly ‘ we have nothing to lose’
when you were not around then
to see me silently retracing my steps, going backwards,
stopping every now and then to pick up a shard of my soul
you had chipped away one way or the other?

How dare you come back
and speak about forgiveness
when you were not around to ask for it, having me blaming myself until I finally realized
all I had to do is forgive myself, as if that was lightly done.

I found my fragments and forgiveness. So you see,
there is nothing light when I tell you:

I do have everything to lose
and nothing to give to you.
