A Blessing (for Mary)

May you keep dreaming
big dreams as large as the sky,
as large as the continent where
you left your heart,
to be all that you are
to be so big, so expansive,
so split open.

May you never give up.

May you take all of you—
every weakness, every strength,
every joy, every hope—
and take one step at a time,
one breath.
The path will take you
where you need to go.

May you always know deep
in your heart that
you are enough.
Your big, dreaming self
is enough.
