Waiting

You are my love;
My heart knew you
Before you were born.

Together in another realm we laughed,
Made plans and shared kisses
As we flew through the endless skies.

My soulmate, my child;
A love so pure and
An innocence undefiled.

Your laugh is a promise
Of truth, beauty,
And a profound future.

To be apart from you
Is like death-but death does not exist;
It is merely a lie of a three dimensional world.

Truth prevails and glory remains;
Waiting for me in a realm
That some refuse to believe.

However, I believe. I know.
For I feel angel kisses on my skin,
And I hear the whisper of your voice in the heavens;

Wanting to collect me like a flower,
And bring me home in your embrace;
To my place of refuge where you wait patiently for me.

You Shone Like The Sun On Autumn Leaves

You shone like the sun on autumn leaves,
Their remaining life brief before they fell from the trees;

The sun’s light was strong, the warmth intense,
Just as was your heart; loving, immense;

But the leaves shriveled up and neared their end,
Just as you when you left, my child, my friend;

Your meaning lives on in every new day,
I begged God for time to extend your stay;

It’s a hard lesson to learn that you have no control,
Over life, over love, over a darling child’s soul;

All we can do is sift through the hours,
And beg for provision, mercy and power,

To experience life’s sentence of lessons and fate,
Before we, too, find ourselves in heaven’s estate.

Love us and guide us from your ethereal view,                                                                                 Until one day we are reunited with you.

Ominous Clouds

Ominous clouds on a haunted street,
Passers by shuffling quickened feet;
Ghosts lurk behind windows, and half open doors;
Watching, waiting, squeaking furniture and floors;
Their time has stopped, clocks are meaningless pieces;
Of a life they once knew, before meeting the reaper;
Confused and rattled, they are bound to cold earth;
No longer feeling happiness, meaning or worth.

Follow Your Heart

Life can be rough.
It can make you want to say,
“Enough is enough! I quit!”

You throw up your hands
In dismay,
Not wanting to go through one more day,

Or minute or hour.
But life demands that you keep moving,
Whether you feel motivated or not.

The trials are turbulent.
The road is rocky.
Yet you know you must continue,

Despite your mind screaming
At you
That it’s time to quit.

This is the key:
Your mind is not your master.
Your heart discerns your personal truth.

Deep down you know
The right thing to do
Is to persevere;

So continue your fight
Until the sun of destiny
Shines on the horizon;

The explanation of all things difficult
Becoming a path of purpose
To Heaven’s door.

The Dance Of Life

Life is a dance; it is a dance
Of love, of compassion,
Of nature, of wit,
If you do it right.

A dance
Of happiness, of holiness,
Of peace, of helpfulness,
If you follow your own enlightened path.

And when your last days come,
You will know if you’ve succeeded
By the people who have gathered around you
And the people who hold you in their hearts.

For life is not a game of chance;
It is a testament
Of who you are as a person
And who you have become,

Through the path
You have chosen to walk
While you found yourself
Here on earth.
