So Let’s Begin…
THE CAREGIVERS GUIDED MEDITATION SCRIPT
It can feel surprisingly lonely,
To choose the path of care,
To teach and tend and give of self
Until it seems there’s nothing there.
This quiet, unsung journey,
This quest to do it all,
Takes so much more than balance,
And casts our needs as small.
The joys are undeniable,
While the costs can feel immense,
And though we wouldn’t change a thing,
We’re aware of the expense.
But our strength is in our numbers,
In the alignment of our hearts,
A devoted crew of warriors,
Its core fortified by its parts.
Your struggles are not secret there,
We see you, one and all,
We know the bliss and price alike,
We understand the call.
Babies, partners, family, friends,
Precious beyond compare,
They need us, and they feed us,
And remind us of all we share.
So lean into the compassionate web,
Where your every intention is clear,
And know that you are not alone,
That understanding hovers near.
Our path is among the noblest,
To nurture is to save,
So we cherish one another,
The love a tidal wave.
Breathe deeply and absorb it,
Pull the power to your core,
It never leaves and never fades,
never minds you needing more.
For this is how we make it through,
How we give and find our best,
We walk the steps of those before,
And know that we are blessed.
In their sacrificial kindness,
We learn to chart our way,
Spreading our love even farther,
Finding strength to face the fray.
You’re not invisible, lovely one,
Instead your purpose makes you glow,
So when you feel the walls pull in,
Shine the light for those who know.
We’re here for one another,
And each heart has its place,
You’re never lost and always found,
Within the sacred space.
Carry on, brave caretaker,
Hold tight when worries swell,
The web stands by to catch you,
To hold you up until all is well.
