Sit down quietly, dear one, low down on the earth or floor
And let me whisper this blessing to you
Can you sit so quietly, so calmly, that you hear your heart beating?
A bright little bird in the cage of your chest?
Rest a hand over this heart of yours
This is an invitation to let her rest
She cannot carry everything
She cannot love everyone
She cannot do everything
She cannot heal overnight
Today, all she needs to do
Is what she is most wonderful at –
