My Companion

Sorrow is my companion
As a shadow that follows me
Pushing the past into the front
Demanding that I finally see

Acceptingly I turn my attention
Call this exiled part of me home
Sitting together in silence
You will never again be alone

Finally knowing you are welcome
I am sorry to have pushed you aside
Disowned you when all that you wanted
Was to acknowledge, and let go my pride

Healing with love and attention
You soften your hold on the pain
Knowing you were always a part of me
Two become whole once again

Stoic Poetry
