Gift of wings

We have a short moment in time

A snapshot of measurement

Moments, day’s months and years

To make the most of

.

Each day lived in, Filled with doing

Sometimes silence and peace

Pondering time, soaking up dreams

Making plans for the future

.

Regrets left behind, Memories are made

Living for the now not the past

Laughing enjoying each day

Future is inevitable not planned

.

You filled my life with adventures

Showered me with kindness

Offered me love, shared yourself

You lifted my grief, showed me life

.

I live in the moment,

I soar with contentment

I fly free with

This gift of wings

Right TIme

After yesterdays news came today’s realisation, that its time for a real change. A chance to live more, not worry about the past or try and see into the future but to take the bull by the horns and make the moment the right time to change.

.

No more waiting for the right time

no more waiting for your call

no more living in the shadows

Time has opened the door

This is the right time

for me to do the right things

to do what I want

for me to be me

and if you choose

you can dance with me

sing my song

live in my life

for its my right time.

Roller coaster of emotions.

Today I have seen most of life events, they have stretched out in front of me and made my day very rich. From simplicity to complicated, from baby to death. My inspiration came today from a young man not much older than my own son, whose mother had recently died. I watched him, listened to him, sympathized with him and thought what a wonderful person he was and how his mother must have been so proud. It brought a smile to my face and tears to my eyes. Today has been a roller coaster of emotions.

Head pounds, pain is searing

Brain wants to escape

Heart beats rapidly

Body follows suit

Smile remains on my face

Deep breaths to stay calm

It is not  mysadness

It is not my turmoil

I am here to help

You pour out your heart

I listen without sound

I wait, you finish

All I can do is help you

Your mother would have been proud

I am glad to have met you

enriched my life.

And be thankful for me

My life and my future.

The River of Life

The stream gently trickles along

This babbling brook, singing merrily

It’s water continually changing and moving

Like the river, we are always doing things for the first time

 

Twisting, turning, gaining momentum

It bends and twists, deepening and widening

With uncertainty, like life, this cannot stagnate

not knowing the depth or the speed, we take a chance

 

Gushing the river flows faster, it crashes on rocks

Swirling and changing direction

In life you can’t push against the water,

Flow Freely yourself, just as the river does

 

Like life, things change change

A dam diverts it, takes it on a new path

We can do the same if we take a chance

Following a new branch if we choose

 

The river does not live in the past

Nor does it live in the future

It lives in the present, in this moment only

Living once, then it meanders away

 

The trickling waters slows right down

Taking time to gently wander

Take a step back for a moment, look at your life

Take a chance, before it meanders away.
