The Spirit Animal
The spirit animal comes to us,
Filled with love and light
When we are broken and raw
Mending the holes in our hearts,
Putting together the missing pieces,
Sending the sadness far away.
She seems to know just what we need,
When we need it most.
Fitting into our lives with ease,
Teaching us with ancient wisdom.
And when she knows we are healed,
Knows her job is done,
The spirit animal takes her leave,
Moving on to spread more light,
To mend more broken hearts,
Always leaving a piece of her joyous spirit
Forever singing in our souls.
In memory of Lenore and Simon of Bedlam Farm, for Jon and Maria…
