As All Your Burdens Lift

If I could take your pain away
I’d blend the perfect balm,
Mixing in contentment
Adding peace and calm

I’d take a tiny spoonful
With all it held within,
Apply it to your broken heart
So healing could begin

At first you’d feel a lightness
As all your burdens lift,
Something that’s been missing
In all you’re dealing with

This followed by sensations
The long forgotten kind,
An absence of all worry
A meditative mind

I’d seat you by the ocean
To look out at the world,
Where eyes had once been clouded
Where lines had once been curled

And there we’d sit together
Reveling in peace,
Understanding kindness
And knowing sweet release
