I visit Safe Haven almost daily... to remember... to touch the pain... now lessened in me, still fresh in others. I go to see where I have been and mark my own path. I look back and know that I have come far... there lay many miles ahead. I still feel Her in me. I smell Her. I taste Her mouth... Her skin. I am sad today for no particular reason. This is not born of remembrance, or the "what might have been's". This is just a wave that has washed over me. It will recede, leaving me salty wet. I will not be washed into the sea of despair... I am firmly grounded... anchored by faith and love and hope... and friendships deeper than the sea itself. Much I have learned. Much I need to know. This path is farther from the fire that raged, decimating my world... I still smell of smoke and wear an ashen face. But I am here. I have survived. My steps continue. And I see the sunrise that greets me. It climbs in the morning sky... lifting me up... to soar with Her.
