My dear friend,
I know the space
of comfort,
was comfortable
to inhabit during
your time…
but now you
have been called
to something

For somewhere in
the middle of joy
and terror, you’ll
find the space
where life

We call if fear:
but it is really
the presence
of the great unknown
knocking at our door-
inviting us to
be more
know more
live more,
than we did before.

Being fearless
is not about
the absence of fear,
it is about mustering
up the courage-
to move forward
into the face
of our fears,
so we can find
the life waiting
on the other side.

And my dear friend,
I know you have
such courage.
