A New Appreciation

 

When movement is away, when a tie weakens and breaks;

           Something lost, something found… as gratitude awakes.

 

A new appreciation for the ties steadfast and strong;

           A new appreciation for the ties that still belong.

 

Ties that now run deeper, ties that now are more;

           Ties that now are closer than how they were before.

 

Ties no longer true are abandoned and set free.

           An empty space leaves room, for a soul to grow and see.

 

A new appreciation for the ties steadfast and strong;

           A new appreciation for the ties that still belong.
