bravest woman I know

she sits at the table
remnants of familiar randomly scattered
within easy reach
where fingers can casually caress
foundation stones to ground her
when all else is adrift
she packed her life in a 5 by 7 space
took a trembling breath
and with eyes wide open
turned and walked away
casting comfort to the wind
she gathered tattered scraps
all things she held dear
and defied her thundering heart
leaving everything she knew
taking a chance
braving more than she'd ever planned
and as steam slowly rises from her cup
I watch with a smile
and more pride than I can express
listening to the clicks of her words
into the silence of the room
she has love all around
welcoming arms have been found
and I hope more than anything she feels
she has at last
come home
