The Stillness

Standard

Peace cannot come soon
Enough.
I embrace it with all my being.
Every breath,
Every cell of me.
For my heart is
Most weary.
I have grown tired of wars
Within and without.
I suppose when you are spent is when you relent
To it;

Becoming
The stillness.
Drained from the fight
You realize light is
The only way
You can
Rise another day;

To be love.

Humanness

Standard

So many people feeling less than.

Surrounded by criticism.

Held hostage by

Those who hold onto forgiveness

And definitions

As power,

Desiring unobtainable perfection through their eyes alone.

Sweet soul,

You are perfectly perfect being human.

Perfection is accepting your humanness,

Our humanness

And the whole of us.

Our so called flaws are part of us.

They make us even more beautiful.

We Have Each Other

Standard

I followed him into his garden.

And there we held each other

And listened as our hearts sang in

Sorrow.

The sky darkened

And that is when I heard

Him

Weeping silently.

We wept together

Holding on until our hearts began singing a familiar song.

And as the sky cleared we heard others singing out too,

“We have each other.

We have each other.”

Constant Abode

Standard

Pardon me while I hold on to

You selfishly from time to time

My child.

For you are part of me.

Infused in my

Bones

And heart,

My being.

Peace settles me completely

When in my arms you sleep.

And supreme joy engulfs me

When your hand in mine

You keep.

 Eternally

My heart exceeds mortal capacity

As

I watch you soar.

And always here I am with

A heart of flame if ever you need more

Kindling to begin again

A fire of your own.

Always

Always

A constant abode.
