It’s been weeks now 

Life had taken a route

That had brought her

To a desolate place 

Where it came to light 

Just how very fragile 

These things we hold 

Most dear tend to be

And notice how often

What’s taken for granted 

Could have been gone

To those more deserving

The weeks that passed

Had a few moments 

When she deeply felt 

What fear can create

And although sometimes 

The clarity was blinding 

It made the whole time

Feel more purposeful 

Then eventually finding 

Her way back to peace

With what was worth taking 

From the  lessons that lasted
