It is said that patience is a virtue
and yet you run yourself so ragged
your mind always yearning for what’s next,
next week’s joy,
the dance of the new year.
When do you give yourself time
to rest in the arms of the One who loves you,
feel the beating of your hearts together
as time stands still,
open to the possibility
that tomorrow may already be.
No amount of urgency or haste can bring forth
that which already is.
Relax, and savor all as it is today,
for in this moment exists all there is,
all there will ever be,
already within you.
Wrap yourself tight in the wings of your Love
rest gently in the peace
of your present tomorrow
