I walk by your side
In whatever way you have not been able to do what you wanted to.
Let it go. You can start right now.
In whatever way you have not done what you said you would.
Let it go. You are forgiven.
In whatever way you still don’t believe you can do it.
Let it go. You can do it.
In whatever way your critic has told you that you will never make it.
Let it go. You can make it.
In whatever way you feel your dream has not been realized.
Let it go. You are right now at the threshold of life. Of possibility.
One more step
my sister and take up your walking stick
and proceed with strides confident and bold
and with the light of your heart as your lantern to see by.
You will feel us right there
on the path beside you
even when you don’t see us.
We are there.
I am are there.
You are there.
Here I am
There you are
and it is mighty fine
to walk by your side.
So my sister —
tell me your story of calling
and I will tell you mine…
This is our sheroe’s journey
and we shall not cease
and we shall not turn back
from answering our call.
