We formed a circle
Sitting around a center filled with love
And reminders: hearts, candles, light.
And we shared
And reached for rumbled tissues.
We sat in that circle and we realized
How completely broken and shattered we are
And how completely whole and loved we are.
In that circle, we were both and all.
Emotions came tumbling out of us
Unlocked by a greater presence.
So now we fly apart and away from the center
We continue on this healing journey
Grieving and healing, laughing and crying.
Answering the call toward love
That grew from moments in the circle.
