There is something about feeling
About loving and caring
That is so wonderful
To be able to feel
No matter what it is
Even anger
To have that part of you that was dead for so long open up to the sun and the wind and the rain.....
I never take feeling for granted
I am always aware that I can feel
Deep down inside
Where the numb used to be
And I always give thanks in my heart
To those with the love
And the patience
Who stayed with me and held me in their hearts
Until, still holding their hands,
I was brave enough to open up my black walls of safety and feel again.

I'm healing now, and I wasn't sure I would.
