At the doorstep of spring
At the doorstep of spring,
the first jasmine petals open up,
releasing their sweet aroma,
until my heart leaps with joy.
This is what I was waiting for,
the unexplainable joy in my heart,
lifting my soul from the darkness,
into a world filled with light.
More and more I am learning,
to find the sweet aroma’s inside myself,
that I can turn into scented candles,
as a gift for the people entering my life.
No matter the problem,
no matter the outcome,
I am entering a season of spring,
where love surrounds me with peace.
Hope is the season of love,
where I learn how to trust,
in a light bigger than the darkness,
and in a love bigger than this world.
