Learning what I can and what I cannot change
Learning who to love and who I cannot love
Mending the broken,
protecting the whole,
savoring this moment,

Forgiving the past,
Preparing the future,
Learning when to let go to what is
Learning how to feel when I feel numb.
Learning to accept the unacceptable.
Learning to welcome the new.
Learning to let myself love you.
Scared to lose all that I have spent to grow,
but in your arms I trust, just this once, I know, I'm learning.
