A Quiet Affair

A quiet affair
Life sometimes is
I’m called to sit and feel
More than
Run around and peel
The layers from my needs

Sitting feels healthy
I can again notice the quietness
It speaks so loudly to my soul
Seems like I’m becoming more whole
As if side by side with life
And surrendered in that silence

Nothing can take this away from me
And yet I can feel myself losing the grip
I have over this
Knowing that gently moving away from it
Would mean certain death of this moment
