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?
Place your hand upon your heart
It will not lead you astray;
For every beat it makes
Brings life to your day.
As you breathe fresh air
Focus on its constant flow;
It should be a pleasant reminder
Of this moment you have to glow.
The gentle sounds of morning
Find a passage to your ear;
Be thankful for this sense you have
Listen carefully to what you hear.
Go about your day with grace
Staying present in this time;
Enjoy the life you are given
Let the positivity within you shine.
Down this Path
What did I do to deserve your eye
Take notice to the energy it gives;
For it is so bold and strong with life
Its message encourages my desire to live.
Live for this day that is given to me
Not yesterday or tomorrow in time;
This is the moment that we can connect
Do your eyes see or are they blind?
Blind are the thoughts that enter my mind
They have no designated path to take
Guide them along with passion and love
And perhaps they may someday feel great.
Great is the feeling for love and affection
For someone who has entered your space;
Do not be afraid of the message it carries
Be thankful for the friendship with grace.
Grace to the higher power in life
That who leads me down this beaten street;
A journey tis true of the ups and downs
Living every day of life that is truly sweet.
I love the cold of winter
As it breathes upon my soul;
The starkness of a frozen pond
It brings warmth to make me glow.
Yet the days are short and nights are long
I wish to see the sun;
As I gaze out to the hills beyond
Recalling winter has just begun.
Peace is in this season’s spirit
Appreciate nature’s gift with grace;
For winter is a time of silence
Its beauty for us to embrace.
