He Found Peace

He heard her song
as he sat lonely on the ground
Her footsteps moving gently
Through the trees

He could not see
But he could feel her
Dancing slow
In ever smaller circles
Around his lodge of twigs and leaves

He heard her thoughts
and felt both pain and sweetness
as she held and rocked him
while he once again became
the child he always was

And as she soothed him in her mother arms
And whispered words of comfort in his ear
He slipped away into that momentary dark
And left behind the sadness
That had burdened him so long
And placed his feet upon the road
That takes you to the place where dreams and spirits dwell.
And he found peace.
