A void beckoned within.
A soul mate. A love. A piece of my puzzle missing, and so the search began.
What I never expected or deserved was handed from above. Contentment. Love.
And yet, I remained incomplete.
Years later, the tears would fall. A longing. A familiar void.
Babies. The answer would be babies.
With watered eyes, I shared such revelations with Jimmy. Together we held hands and took in the moment. The moment of finding completion. My tears of sadness turned to tears of hope.
A month went by and I became pregnant. 9 long months later, my beautiful son was born. I felt amazing. I had purpose. My baby.
Time continued to pass as the seasons changed, and yet I remained the same. Purposeless. Filled with a void. A longing.
I had my soul mate. I had my baby. What could be missing?
And so I searched and searched. I cried and cried. Then I waited and waited.
Still nothing, and the void became all encompassing.
My self, my soul, my smile and heart....were lost to the search. The quest. The hopelessness.
A bigger house, a higher raise, a nicer car....another baby.
And still. I remained. Unfulfilled.
As a secret is whispered softly from ones lips to anothers ears, the truth recently became mine. My eyelids heavily came to a close. A breath escaped from my soul.
It was not outside of me. It was not even within my physical or emotional grasp.
Yet I felt it, I heard it. Beyond and inside. All encompassing. Lifting me up, beckoning me on. Right there, right here.
Standing still. I knew.
The void still existing...yet subsiding one breath at a time.
Nothing physical could make it dissipate.
So I give my heart, my soul, my life...all that is within and all that is external...and the moment I do,
His breath replaces mine.
Not lost, not without hope, not without purpose. Not unfulfilled. Created for a purpose.
One breath at a time, I draw nearer toward becoming perfectly complete.
