of what really matters.
I bless your heart to be massaged
with finest balsam.
I bless all of your interactions
to be of compassionate understanding
and to resonate with healing sound.
I bless you with hands to uphold you
when you have no strength to stand.
I bless the wisdom of the ages to be clear,
a multitude of proverbs to fit your need.
I bless your own innate wisdom
to rise to the surface, benediction through pain.
I bless the silence of your day to be rich
and the moments to be calm water.
I bless you to receive the love bestowed
and to know yourself as never forgotten.
I bless the urgency of your spirit
to rest into the next step as it manifests.
I bless you to never feel lonely,
although tempted to feel so.
I bless you in the rejuvenations of time,
a journey with a particular pace.
I bless you to not feel rushed
and to be with the tears when they come.
I bless you to befriend your emotions
and to hear what each has to say.
I bless you to listen to your own inner voice,
the foresight of your life to surface.
I bless you to let things as they were, be as they were,
so that things as they are, may become.
I bless you with a handing over of reins,
a relinquishing of what can't be controlled.
I bless you to accept your limitations,
so that boundless measures may flow.
I bless you to lean back into the heartbeat
of the One who surrounds you, even now.
