Today I read a
Letter I wrote to myself a
Year ago or so

To be opened now
And read with my year-later
Hopefully healed eyes

It was a letter
Suggested by a grief book
Sent by a dear friend

At the time I
Remember thinking “dream big”
And so I did

As I read my hopes
For myself on this day, now
I was encouraged

Some have come true and
Others are in the works, while
Some are yet still dreams

But the best part was
Seeing the grace I gave myself
To heal and to dream
