The stillness of being
is when the soul speaks.
Slow down and see
The sweetness of life.
Sit and feel the
Breeze hit your skin.
There is nothing to do,
Nowhere to be.
Sit my dear soul,
Learn to be still.
Know that the rain
Cleanses the wounds,
The hurt and the pain
So the rays of today
Shed light and love
onto a brand new soul.

I am home now.
My soul sits pleasantly
Right beside my heart,
Knowing very well
That the love I searched
And searched for
Was actually here
In my own being all along.
My journey in this lifetime
Had to pass from
Student to teacher
And back again
To learn the fates
Hanging in the gates
Of this earthly plane.
Now heaven appears;
God’s will be done
Through divine love.
For I’m just a messenger—
My time here is short
But I have work to do
And love to spread.
Incubation of my heart
Has ceased and what’s
Revealed may only be
Described as Divine.
For I cannot explain
What this mission is for
Except to say it is my soul
Who has come to deliver
What is known in the heavens
And keenly placed on my heart.
Why wait until the gates
Await with blinding white?
Why live with darkness
When you can choose light?
The choice is yours but
I have made up mine.
Heaven is for real
And I’m bringing the
Down the Divine love.

When I look to the sky
And to the clouds,
All is well.
When I look to the stars
and to the moon,
All is well.
When I look to the
Trees and the birds
And the blooms,
All is well.
All is well when
Nature is upon me,
When the Heavens
Meet the Earth
In every spectacular
Breeze of the wind,
Rustle of the leaves,
Stigma of a rose,
And chirp of a bird.
All is well because
The force behind
The cumulus clouds
And the rainbows
And the butterflies
Is surely the force
Moving inside of me.
And in that space,
Where I feel the whole
World move through me,
I know in fact
All is well.

The mockingbird sings
And I flock to her song.
She sings of the beauty
And influences around her
Yet she still stands tall
And fearless as her own
Divinely created self.
It is I who takes note
Of the spirit behind
This magnificent messenger,
I am in fact a creature
Of my influences and experiences
And yet I sing my own sacred song.
I am not my past even
Though it gave me a stage
For which I learned to
Valiantly sing with abandon
Of a love so divinely inspired
That my heart’s melody
Is a heavenly medley
Of the spirit within,
Calling me forth
To fearlessly forge
My purposeful path
And unleash my inner
Song for humanity to hear.
Yes, my mockingbird sings
With a powerful voice ready
To shine unto others
The light in her heart.

A Grand Legacy of Love

Look at your legacy
Manifesting on Earth.
See the grand love,
The epic storytellers,
The practical wisdom?
It is all because you
Poured out your heart
While on this Earth.
You shared your gifts
And inspired us all
To embrace ours.
We have your love
To guide us through.
Your witty words,
Quips and jokes
Echo in the walls
Of our minds and hearts.
Your light-filled presence,
Felt, tried and true,
Gives the gift of purpose
In seeking all we are.
Now isn’t this your
Greatest gift?
To fill our lives
With the stuff
That truly matters—
The pursuit of love
And telltale dreams?
Thank you for embodying
A spirit that lives
Beyond your human years
And resides precisely
Where you belong:
The walls of our hearts.

Wash Cares Away

Leave all of your cares
At your feet where
The water cleanses
And carries them away.
Allow the woes and
The worries alike
To fade as the wave
Retreats from where it came.
Allow the negativity to
Leave your being
And replace it with love.
Just be love.

I am not giving up on you,
But I am giving in to me,
Into my needs and my love
Just as you always have.
I am standing my ground,
But hear me when I say
I will not give up.
I will love you from afar
And support your dreams.
I will lift you up and
Always wish you well.
I know I will see you again.
I don’t know when or where;
I don’t know how either.
But in the distance that
Our lives take us apart,
Know there is never
A semblance of distance
In between the heart.
I will keep you there
Where you feel safe and warm,
Until one day you may just
Decide to feel what it’s like
To climb inside for awhile.
To know that you are loved;
You are so loved.
Until that distant day,
I’ll hold you in my heart
And see you in my dreams.

I shut off my feelings
In order to survive.
But I’d rather feel
The depth of my love,
The craze of my aching heart
Than push my emotions
Back under the sand.
I’d rather feel
Painstakingly alive
Than asleep to my own life.
You captured my heart
So long ago and yet
Try as I might
And fight as I will,
I cannot shut off
What is dying to be alive,
If you’ll let me
If I can just see
What lures beneath
The layers of security,
I know I will burst
With the power of
A billion flames
The love I held captive
And the intention
I dare to set free.
To love you like
It’s my last waking day.
To prove that you,
My dear one are
Far from cursed.
Here stands a love
Far greater than most.
If you’ll let me carry
Your fearful heart,
I’ll show you the way
To an unrivaled love.

Follow what lights
Your on heart fire
And sets your soul free.
Take a giant leap
And choose love.
You may not know
Where you will land,
But following your passions
Far outweighs living
On the sidelines in fear.
Would you rather feel
Painstakingly alive,
Following your passions
Into the unknown abyss?
Would you rather feel
Your heart burning in
Your chest or
Wonder what
Could have been
Had you courageously
Said yes to love?
Would rather not know
Where your leap lands
Or have your feet
Firmly planted right
Where you are in
An unexplored life?
When at the crossroad
Of fear and love,
choose love,
Every damn time.

When all is said and done
I want to be the one
who is standing last.
I loved you then,
I love you now,
I will love you always.
There isn’t a force
that could keep us at bay
but there is a God
who won’t let us stray.
One day we will know
exactly where we stand.
All questions aside
and feelings explored.
For now, my love
continues to grow
and I pray one day
you will begin to see
just how deep my love is,
just how much you mean to me
and just how far I’ll go to fight.
