Here

Standard

Shadows on the walls

Sun up high,

But I cannot move.

God,

I know you have to go but I don’t want you too.

I feel I should have done more,

Said more.

There is never enough time when the end is coming.

Feeling selfish cause it is not all about me,

But

Yes it is because i love you so.

And you say the light is blinding

And you will always be here

But

I don’t care,

I just don’t care.

I want you here where I can see you.

I want you here where I can hold you.

I just want you here.

I know you are in pain

And i know you are strong.

As soon as we are born

We know we are going to move on

Doesn’t make it any easier.

Setting Sun

Standard

I drove into the sunset tonight,

No looking back.

And the sun she did gladly bathe me in her setting beauty

And I did gladly drown in her offering.

Blinded and breathless.

Purified by a different light

But i am alive.

Yes

Most certainly alive.

In Front of Me

Standard

The sun rose gently today,

I am thankful for that.

Giving my eyes time to adjust;

Delicate light

Touches stone

And cactus.

Life around me

Stretches and yawns at once.

The birds join in

As they announce the arrival of day once again,

Happily

In synch with the natural rhythms of life.

The sun has peaked the horizon

And now burns my eyes.

For this I am grateful as well,

To set myself free of yesterdays burdens

And confusion

With breath and light,

For this is the world

Right in front of me.

Defy

Standard

Defy your fears.

Take courage of heart

And

Rise.

Lift yourself up and out,

Into the sunlight.

Rest there as long as you need

Feeling heat upon skin;

Breathing air into the neglected depths

Of your lungs.

Here you will feel once more

The blood beating through your veins.

Remember yourself.

Listen. There is your heart song.

Allow yourself to weep,

Allow yourself to sing.

One, two , three inhale and roar.

One, two, three take a chance and soar.

Light Filter

Standard

The air is chilly now and I am wishing I had

Thrown on a sweatshirt.

I

Lay down in the ground on my belly

And prop my chin up on my hands.

The evening sun is getting lower and I love

To watch as light filters through all of the different petals and leaves.

If I squint my eyes it looks like millions of stars

Are resting amongst the flowers just like me.
