Send Love, It Matters

Carrie Newcomer

 

Somewhere someone needs help.
Send love.
It matters.
If you canā€™t get there yourself,
then take a deep breath.
Breathe in the weight of their troubles.
Breathe out and send all those burdens
into the Light
where sorrows can be held
with the most tender and infinite grace.
Breathe in what you can do.
Breathe out what you canā€™t change.
Spool out a thread of connection,
send courage and calm.
For the nights can be long
and filled with shadows,
and sometimes terrible
unexpected waters will rise.
Somewhere someone needs help.
Send love.
It matters.
