When kisses and handshakes have long been forgotten And people and places no longer seem near If life’s weary journey gets bad and then rotten And cares seem to fill you with fear When all through the daytime you worry And then in your eye comes a tear If smiles seem to leave you in a hurry And people don’t smile when you are near ….
When people you’ve left, you cease to remember And people you’ve met don’t know that you’re there When bright June days seem like December With shadows of gray everywhere When the burden of living weighs on your heart And people are cruel and unfair If no one is present to take your part And no one is near you to care ….
When you haven’t anyone you can turn to And your life is beginning to drag And you can’t do the things that you yearn to If your hopes seem to die or to lag When you can’t seem to muster up courage And your back ‘neath the burden does sag If you are much too old for your age And the things that are done seem to nag ….
When you look for some of your old pals And you think, “Here, perhaps is the end.” If you hope you’ll be meeting the dear guys and gals And you’re wondering where summer you’ll spend Remember ~ there’s one that is always true There will constantly be someone thinking of you Remember ~ Always Remember ~ I’m your friend.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I am taking a break from blogging. It’s been 18 months since my sister died and I have been depressed for too long and need to go into therapy to help me deal with my loss and the deep grief . I shall miss all of you but I hope to return in better spirits ~ Be well everyone and keep safe and be grateful for all those wonderful people in your life ~
Sometimes, such grace will touch a simple thing, A gesture, or a word, that it will hold A meaning far beyond the thing itself. At evening, when the air was growing cold I used to watch her gather in her shawl In folds about her shoulder, in a way That gave me such delicate joy, hard to define. It seemed to have some goodness to convey. For in her was a pool of gentle quietness A sure repose, untouched by any storm. I watched her as she gathered in her shawl And felt enfolded too, in her love, so safe and warm.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I miss you mama ~ theradiance of your pure and shining spirit still illuminates my path and guides all of my days ~
Tears were entangled in her eyelashes, looking through them she saw a blurred world, lined with rainbows where laughter never ended and memories didn’t make you cry, because nothing that was good ever went away for long. And hearts were pumped with love and never failed because there was always enough to go around. And death was only a relative term instead of an end. The tears swelled and slipped silent as her sigh down her cheeks, leaving only their pale traces, and a loving wish behind them.
Sweet soul of my song – Oh, welcome guest Coming at my bidding, leaving at a breadth Thrilling, inspiring and exalting thing Life of my heartstrings, of thee, I sing!
Wings of my fancies, flight of my soul Door to each mood – cheering to the goal Strong as the mighty, yet gentle as love True in your mission, as light from above!
Everbringing to life, at love’s command True friendship, joy, and triumph – grand. You speak in your tones of wondrous charm And into my soul, there creeps a balm Strengthening, soothing, healing each wound Holding securely the joys I have found Walking my ears with the voice of the dove Calling to being peace, comradeship, and love!
Swaying in silent charm, laughing in glee Oh soul of eternal joy, I cling to thee! So joyous in your life of melodious strain Scarce do you sleep, ere I call you again.
I love you Because you are blue-eyed and clean-limbed And because every morning I awaken to your kiss as you run your fingers through your hair. And you rock your heels when you’re pleased And swear at little things, and grin at hurdles. I love you because of the man you are today and the man you will become. And because of that small boy you must have been Who still looks out of your eyes when you smile And speaks with your voice when you dream. I love you because, when life has hurt you With some foul thrust or lightning dart, bitter as rind You put your head in my lap and say: “I need you. Comfort me!” I love you because you came one Summer day And caught my small heart up, and flooded it with ecstasy Fusing my every thought, my every mood, with yours Until we conquered time, and space and pain And dwelt above the stars, one and alone together Inseparable. I love you because you love me and tell me so Sometimes In words and deeds that glow With love’s bright fire. And never forget before have I loved And never forget again will I love Anyone as I love you Because you are you,and I am I And that is the way of it.
Shewrapped her form in folds of lifting laughter that fell like ribbons of hyacinths and tinkling bluebells at her feet. She wore her gaiety like a sparking jeweled tiara in her hair. Carefully she draped … Her mirth must not be gossamer, sorrow was hidden there. She remembered soul-sung kisses tender hands and lips suffused with wild expectancy knew of eternal quiescence on a mosses’ velvet green … But she thought of one grieved night when silver wings went sobbing as they crashed a rocky shore … Now she finds no sleep through somber, shrouded nights and clothed in laughter, no one knows that she has cause to weep.
She put her eager hands about my life and led me out into the bright new day. The clean, cool wind blew through my laughing hair. All wonder glowed upon my waiting face. She taught me how to love all small and tender things. She showed me how to mix the wind and rain into peaceful lullabies. She taught me about the secret heart of flowers. We practiced how the robin loves his soul. She showed me how a rain-pool holds the world. How I could give a sunset-full of love.
I thought I heard your footsteps running toward me disturbing the stones but when I opened my eyes I saw it was only the waves pulling and swirling like hands.
I thought I felt your smile warm and loving upon my face but when I opened my eyes I saw it was only the sun beaming at me from across the water.
I thought I heard you whisper my name but when I opened my eyes I realized it was only the wind playing in my hair.
I thought I felt you softly kiss my cheek but when I opened my eyes I saw it was only a leaf caressing me with gentle strokes.
And then I felt your love in me and around me powerful yet gentle like the waves warm and shining like the sun soft yet strong like the wind tender and alive like the leaves and I didn’t even have to open my eyes I knew you were there.
