My dear child,

Can’t you see how beautiful you are?

Can’t you see you’re precious beyond words?

See how your smile lights up the room,

how your gentle presence fills our hearts with love.

Nothing you think, say or do

can take away from this eternal beauty within.

We love you without measure,

we respect, nurture, and cherish you.

Fill your heart with spaciousness,

and walk in the light of love,

knowing you are a true daughter of God,

carefully crafted in His image.

Compassion rules the world,

yours too.

Don’t let your failures fool you,

they reflect how hard you are trying

and how deep your commitment is.

Open your heart to the life within you,

celebrate your efforts and your failures:

they are the proud sign of your true self.

I wrote this poem after a deeply spiritual session with a dear client. I always make notes after each session, and send them to my clients for feedback whether they are correct and complete. This session was beyond words and logical reconstruction. I wrote a poem instead and post it here in honor of my friend, my client.

If you want my help to deepen your self-compassion, healing and integration, contact me for a complimentary, discovery session.
