Just Out of Reach

You say you want it all… I have never known that ambition. I have just desired God. I am simple like that.

I believe I get that from my mother and I see it in my daughter. It’s what I love and crave.

I feel grateful, content and blessed. There is nothing here to weigh in unwanted desire.

I have peace of mind, which came at a hefty price. Leaving in its wake a distant memory.

Still sifting through these dreams. Somewhere near sleep, sorting out what’s been missing.

It’s so deeply rooted in human fears about something we can never know. I’m OK that I know so very little.
