When one dream has ended
And the dark settles in
Look quickly above you
Grab a star and a pen

The starlight will guide you
The pen you will take
And begin a new story
Leaving out all heartbreak

Just open a suitcase
And save a few thoughts
Of times you can remember
Without feeling lost

Then start a new journey
Look up at the sky
You'll find your direction
And new wings to fly

Karen Shaw Matteson

Contentment comes as the infallible
result of great acceptances, great
humilities--of not trying to make
ourselves this or that, but of
surrendering ourselves to the fullness
of letting life flow through us.
