I’m Still Here

There is this beautiful thing that you do

Well, it’s one of the millions of beautiful things that you do


Like a meteor shower streaking across a star-packed sky

Or a Tiger Lily waving above a field of wildflowers


There’s this thing that you do

That shakes your life so violently


But maybe it’s so large that you can’t see it clearly or feel it truly

Like the size and depth of the ocean or the spin of the Earth


But I see this beautiful thing

And I feel it too


You mistake fear for strength

You mistake pain for goodness


And this beautiful thing

Turns my heart to stone.
