We are gold

Gavin Thomas Murphy runs a website called Gratitude In All Things where he looks to Ignatian Spirituality for strength and inspiration.

Last week, I was treated with great kindness by a colleague when I spoke about moving on from one phase of my life to another. She inspired me to meditate on how God might treat us, and I wrote this poem afterwards. I offer it in gratitude.

We are Gold

A look, an embrace, a kindness
yes, you are precious
my child

You are gold

I hear your breath in the
darkness of the night
I am with

We rise together my child
for you are gold
you are

Be still as I comfort you in
your troubles

I will always comfort you
sometimes challenge

In the night of your dreams
I love you

the deepest kind of love
