Time: A reminder of what we have and what we miss.
We smile, we live, we love, we laugh.
We never forget those we love who have left us behind.
They sit quietly within our thoughts and our dreams.
Tomorrow is not promised.
Life is fleeting, a gift, a moment in time,
precious and delicate woven like butterfly wings.
Things can change in the flutter of a heartbeat,
sadness and joy, an endless circle.
No beginning, no end, no answers.
Accept, embrace, be thankful,
You have today.
Life is beautiful, even if the sun doesn’t shine.
Winter creeps in with a chill in her bones,
And ice on her lips, eyes as deep as stars.
She stretches her fingers to the dying sun,
Spreading cold and darkness to the land.
Yet we honour her beauty and respect her wisdom,
As she invokes her magic spell.
It is a time of waiting, reflecting, meditating.
A time of change and inner struggle, but
Darkness will turn to light, shadows will be cast away,
Our hopes restored, our spirits reborn.
We rejoice in her courage, take stock from her strength.
And as we dream, she gently kisses the face of spring.
The wheel turns again.
I think I’ve lost my muse, it’s gone and ran away!
I’ve looked in all the cupboards, and even tried to pray.
I’ve called it from the bedroom and the garden too,
I know you won’t believe me, but it’s really true.
I wonder how to find it? Will it ever come back?
If it really doesn’t I’ll have a panic attack.
Perhaps I’ll sit here quietly pretending I don’t care,
Then maybe I will trick it into my little lair.
Oh how I wish I was tall
Not short, round, fat and small!
I’d swan all around,
Looking down at the ground
And trying hard not to fall!
The Tree has its roots buried deep in the cool earth, keeping it grounded and centered, connecting it to life’s inner core.
While its branches extend to the heavens above, imagining endless possibilities, futures and dreams.
It lives many lifetimes through the changing of the seasons, the setting of the sun and the rising of the moon.
It exudes strength, courage and wisdom.
Reminding us to be strong, hold fast and live in the moment.
So mote it be.
Sometimes I feel such anger
Sometimes I feel such pain
Sometimes I just want to shout
And scream again and again
I don’t know how to control it
I don’t know how it ends
I don’t want to feel it
I just want to be a friend
My energy is all used up
And not in a way that’s good
I need to try and de stress
I only wish I could
I will always be here
And my love is forever strong
I know that deep down you need me
