I Woke Up Crying

I was deep in a dream
There was a storm gathering
And in the distance
A wave was building
I was scared
And also excited
I knew things would never be the same
And I was going to be called
To be brave and resolute
A voice somewhere whispered
‘This is it,’
I felt weak and unprepared
Doubtful and insecure

And then I looked around
And saw others
With the same look in their eyes
I saw sorrow and I saw some grief
I saw their sadness in saying goodbye
To what was
Yet I also saw a presence, a resolve
A joy and an openness
To what was unfolding
‘This it,’ They said

And I woke up crying.
