My Hope & Galaxy of My Soul


 

My Hope
(Prayer for the New Year)

As I lay me down to sleep...........
I pray My Hope my Heart to keep
If I die before I wake
I pray My Hope my Heart to take..........

But when I wake, I pray my Heart My Hope remake.......

In my Hope My Heart shall rest
And renew from last year's tests.......
If my Hope is true and strong
I pray My Heart will carry on

Let my Hope be deep and pure to
Teach my Heart to trust anew
Guide Its path to where Light is
And show my Heart that Joy still lives

Give It strength to look inside
To battle demos that there still hide
Let My Hope fill It with courage
To help It deal with all the damage

As my Heart fills up with Light
Let It know that Hope survived
Show It warmth and care and sight
Let It see how my Life has thrived

Lend compassion for my Heart
Show that love is all around
Let It know a Lover's touch
Make It True and Sure and Right

As I lay me down to sleep...........I Hope...........

Winter's Miracles & Winter Mornings




Winter's Miracles
 
How easily we forget the true meaning of the time when Miracles happen
When the sky is dark and the breath is cold
We rush blindly after things that have no true meaning
As silent Miracles go unnoticed........
We bestow useless trinkets upon the ones we love
Using them as substitutes for support and care and comfort
Only to find that our hearts are left empty.
We try to fill this void with more trivial things
But our emptiness only grows deeper
Exhausted from this vicious cycle
We stop; look up into the depths of the Slow our breath, and inhaling the crisp winter's air
We begin to remember............
We remember the old stories
Of the Journey and the Struggle, and the Pain
Of the Birth and the Joy of Life
And we are filled with wonder as our daily struggles fade into the distance
Reaching out our arms and embracing the ones we Love
Extending our love to strangers
Sharing our bounty with those who have none
Our hearts open and fill with Hope, and Joy, and Peace, and Love .....
We realize that the greatest Miracle lays within us!

My Soul On Fire  




 

My Soul on Fire

 

Raging with the Silent
Screams of the Lonely Child

It Burns with the Flames
Stoked by Fears from Long Ago

It Cries out for the Tender Moments
Lost to Rage

Born of Pain, It Burns
Consuming Everything

It’s Hungry tongues licking, devouring
Life Itself

When the Soul burns with Rage
It sees Nothing else, It feels Nothing more

When the Soul feeds on Pain
It Dies.
