Meditation on the Lives that Never Were

You put your faith in nature

but for reasons unknown to you and me

they say it wasn’t meant to be —-

hollow words lay unsettled in hollow wombs.

Unworn onesies, unsong songs.

And so you go on —

you live, you love, you create.

You are a part of the cycle in ways larger than you think possible.

Though you still long to hold a little hand,

your hand is held

as the universe moves you along,

promising to show you the way.

  1. It’s a beautiful idea, but one I have struggled with all my life. Experienced the infertility thing, too. Sometimes there’s just no comfort — even in thinking the universe has other plans for you. (Just my thoughts on it…)

    • Thank you for sharing that. Not being able to find comfort is a challenging place to be – mindfulness can be a tool in that place. Not that it’s “easy” by any stretch of the imagination. I grieve for my friends who have been in that place of wanting something so badly that they can not have.
