Little Bear and Me
Autumn is quickly approaching,
the trees bend and begin to sway
and with the wind they crackle,
as their branches are tested to this day.
Some birds will winter at the feeder
from day to day and others will have
taken flight to soar to climates like
a warm Northern day in May.
Sometimes we want the joy and
so we brush the darkness away,
until we open up our eyes and realize
the past has the paved the way.
It gives to us a few lessons, to
get us through the sorrow and grief,
for if it were not for experience,
we would lose our gift to dream.
The Sum of Life
I looked once more into the mirror
a reflection did I see, It was not
just one staring back, I saw you
there standing next to me.
Frightened and filled with sorrow,
for tomorrow may never come,
but then I realized the sum of life,
is adding hope with love.
I kept you close, I held you near,
for you live within my heart and
when the darkness comes to visit,
I feel the life of love within my heart.
Your presence is overwhelming,
through the darkest days of gray,
you give the brightest of light, like
sunshine on a summer day.
The Souls View
The characters and places,
the times and minutes of a day,
all were sifted through my heart,
where only the gems of life remain.
At first there was confusion,
I didn't know my way and
then sunshine and laughter,
which I allowed to guide me
through the day.
I wanted time to stand still, ,
I prayed it wouldn't fade,
I wanted love and laughter
every moment of the day.
I thought I recognized it,
like magic it appeared
and as a storm in passing,
the rain washed away the fear.
My heart felt a loss, my soul
knew much to well, that we
are here upon this earth to
experience both heaven and
I asked the Lord why? Why am I here today?
if only but to whither like a flower and fade away.
Despite our days of sorrow and the trials of
our yesterdays, we are here to journey and
experience the colors the heavens made.
