Here is a poem from Christina Kim she wrote to her father.
Thank you for what I have learned in your company.
And in my own quest for meaning and wholeness.
Thank this body for all the work it has done.
All that it has been through.
All that it holds up.
Noticing this pain but do not dwell in it.
The disappointment of its limitations, changing shape, changing abilities
Respect that: resting with what is
Loving oneself anyways
Like child self – no choice
The weight of time, responsibilities, goals, schedules to keep, racing mind
Keep up! Something more to do. Protect myself.
Proving myself to myself.
