The Beginning

In out-of-the-way places of the heart,
Where your thoughts never think to wander,
This beginning has been quietly forming,
Waiting until you were ready to emerge.

For a long time it has watched your desire,
Feeling the emptiness growing inside you,
 Noticing how you willed yourself on,
Still unable to leave what you had outgrown.
-John O'Donohue
