(2002) Realization - Poem by Deana Rode

Alone I stood, looking onto the horizon
when she came to me.
I looked down at her,
the face of innocence in her eyes;
a little girl lost and afraid.
'Which way do I go? ' she asked quietly.
I hesitated for a moment,
then slowly something crept into my mind;
a simple sentence surfaced,
and I knew I was to tell it to her.
'Follow your heart, and you'll know the way.'
She looked up at me, a smile on her lips,
and then she hugged me.
Alone I stood, looking to the horizon;
her spirit weaved into mine,
showing me that I hadn't answered her question,
but had answered my own.
