To Trust the Mystery

The mystery of the last breath,
the mystery of goodbyes and tears,
and I quietly look out the window
to a place somewhere beyond the horizon,
as I learn to trust the moment,
to trust the journey,
to trust the uncertainty of darkness,
to trust the mystery,
and to deeply surrender to the silence of the heart.
