Pastorale

Twilight at the lake house
Around the bonfire with friends
Sipping, talking, laughing…
For now, all is well.
I hold this shining moment:
So glad I hung on,
Despite the pain,
The hopelessness,
The not knowing how to go on.
If I had ended it all
15 years ago
I would have missed
This sweet Spring night –
The sun saying goodnight to the trees,
Spending time with friends I never knew I’d meet,
Finally feeling happy to be alive.
