When pain comes to you

When pain comes to you
Embrace it, accept it,
It tells you that you are alive
That you can think and feel
That you have a beating heart
And a ticking mind.
When tears brim in your eyes
Let them flow
They tell you that you allowed
Pain to seep through
And whet your soul
That you were not afraid
To be yourself
And to feel with abandon.
That you lived
And loved
That you didn’t just
Skim the surface of life,
But dived deep
And came up with pearls.
When pain comes to you
Don’t block it
Let it be an old friend
With keys to your heart
Let it come and go as it pleases
And sometimes meet it at a landing
And ask, ‘Hey, how you doin’ now?’
