The Stillness


Peace cannot come soon
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;

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

To be love.



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


I followed him into his garden.

And there we held each other

And listened as our hearts sang in


The sky darkened

And that is when I heard


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


Pardon me while I hold on to

You selfishly from time to time

My child.

For you are part of me.

Infused in my


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.


My heart exceeds mortal capacity


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.



A constant abode.
