Sanar el alma

4, 5, 6, 7, 8 años despues... entiendo un poco. Ella, la de las plumas de colores y las piedras. La sabia, la madre, la maestra, la bruja, la ninfa, la musa, la guia... me escucho. Por primera vez le conte de mi dolor, del hueco, de lo que no entendia... todo esto que tengo dentro con tu nombre. De mis esfuerzos de sacarlo, de sanarlo, de poder verte de frente, de regalarte un abrazo, de verte sin lagrimas. De mi temor.. le conte de mi temor, de no saber, de herir, de no decir, de decir... entonces me conto. Y 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 años despues empiezo a entender. Las actitudes que no decifre, las palabras que me enredaron, los eventos que no acepte... tanto, tanto... terca, terca... y me hablo de sanacion, de devolverl lo que no es mio, de pedir lo que si es mio de vuelta, de despedidas, de bienvenidas, del destino. Mi alma solto dos lagrimas; una de alivio y otra de alegria. Ya no estoy esperando, ya no estoy intentando... ya me siento (mas) tranquila.
