11. ... change itself is constant and reliable

and her memories were fragile shadows
changing with the morning light.
Then it occurred to her,
"Change itself is very constant and reliable."

Once upon a time the sun rose over the earth
and spilled a bright new day into the sky.
That was the moment she realized this was
her chance to start anew.

“How come life washes up all kinds
of lovely surprises for some people.”
he asked her.
“Oh they are the people who are present enough to notice.”
she answered.

“Once I ached to be OK in your eyes”,
she confessed, “Now it’s OK I’m not.”

"If I don't catch you when you fall,"

And he took my hand and led me
toward the things that did matter.

“What I am looking at is not important,
it’s what I see that matters”, she thought.

He held her tiny hand close to his heart,
and he told her,

“What is left of my dream could fit in a matchbox,”
she didn’t mean to complain to him
but the words had escaped
from a crack in her broken heart.
“Sounds like a cozy little future after all,”
he said with a wink and a grin.

1. "Shh", she hushed

“Shhh”, she hushed, “Listen”.
That’s when I heard it. The answer.
It came right from my very own heart.
