Once upon a time ago life changed mighty quickly
Due to this infectious enemy we could not see;
People panicked around the world
While the virus spread its venom like killer bees.
No longer were we allowed to embrace our neighbor
We had to keep a distance from each other;
Shelter in place was our only protection
I wonder how mankind will ever recover.
Fear grew daily from the news
As the number of infected was on the rise;
Hospitals struggled to keep up with its demand
Some people got better while others lost their lives.
Was this something somehow created by science
Or did it just evolve from the planet;
Perhaps it was sent by a higher power
As a wake-up call that life should not be taken for granted.
Lessons to be learned from this pandemic event
Take in each breath and give thanks for the air;
Live for today, for tomorrow is never promised
And communicate your thoughts and feelings thru prayer.
Find beauty in this moment
Moment that is present today
Today greets me with the morning light
Light that shines and wakes the spirit
Spirit that needs affection and love
Love for the day that is given to me.
Accept the Path You have Taken
Accept the path you have taken
For that is the road you have chosen;
The path may not be perfect
Accept that it may stir some emotion.
Accept the moment that is given
For that is all you can control;
The moment may not be as you expected
Accept it down deep in your soul.
Accept the body you live in
For that is what you have molded;
The look may not be what quite you wanted
Accept that your wonderful life has unfolded.
Accept all that has been given to you
For this is what you have unconsciously asked for;
Be thankful for all that has come your way
Accept these gifts as they should not be ignored.
A Portrait of a Human
A portrait of a human
The expression on his face;
Does it really mater
What ancestry of the race.
The beauty in this portrait
Provides comfort from his soul;
The wisdom he has gained
From the years of stories untold.
Peace has descended upon this man
As he ages with amazing peace;
Life is a wonder of miracles
That never seems to cease.
We gain wisdom from his smile
And comfort from his grace;
Learn from our ancestors
What else can we embrace?
Budding trees burst with joy
As the day awakens to the rising sun;
Leaves pop open on each tender branch
Nature’s work has just begun.
A warm breeze flows from the wind
As it gently touches the tree;
A song is heard from the moving leaves
Softly swaying with a rhythmic glee.
Gentle rain falls from the sky
Washing away the dust in the air;
Drops of dew accumulate upon each leaf
Nourishment that provides its care.
As the fog begins to lift and fade away
The wind sends a stronger breeze;
Sun shines brightly as the clouds drift apart
Sending warmth to the budding trees.
The Energy Within
Let the energy within you
Shine before the light;
It holds much spirit
That will carry you thru the night.
Energy yet untapped
You did not know you had;
Will it to come before you now
Experience its force that makes you glad.
Like Nature’s beautiful flower
That rises from the stem;
The strength within its petals
A precious gift that is truly a gem.
The power of the spirit
With the energy it holds;
Tap into this inner strength
Feel its blossom begin to unfold.
From the time you rise
Till the day is done;
Transition your spirit
With the movement of the sun.
As it rises in the eastern sky
Sending the light for the morning;
Transition your body
But take notice to your yawning.
Wake up and feel alive
New thoughts come your way;
Transition your mind
To the path of the day.
Enjoy each and every moment
That is meant for you now;
Transition to peace
Your body needs this chow.
Night knocks on the front door
As the sun goes down to the west;
Transition to sleep
You soul needs to rest.
