Showing Up

The chaplain reminded us,

that life consists of showing up,

being there, in good and bad,

when life gets hard,

when life gets easier.

Being present,

it’s not easy sometimes,

as our own life gets messy,

falling off the rails,

pushing us to the edge,

where we stumble about.

Maybe it’s then,

when we’re uncertain,

when life is foggy,

that our being there, 

just listening is enough.

Showing up,

not with certainty,

armed only with love.
