Loving You

Sweetly, softly, call my name,
I will always come,
Hold you in your darkest hours,
Be there when you need someone.

For you are beautiful to me,
Soul shining forth, sword held aloft,
Fair of sight, clear to see,
Cutting through the veil and sloth.

Offering change to those you meet,
You step into your day,
A different way the morn to greet,
Showing how to live another way.

Following need of other’s path,
Giving all you can,
Helping where the need for help,
Outweighs the ways of man.

Leading by example,
Showing Universal truth,
From beneath the veils of illusion,
You bring your spirit forth.

Soft and gentle when it needs,
Tender, caring, fun.
Childlike in your actions,
Loving each and everyone.

And when you need the balance,
Human part becoming frail,
I’ll swiftly move beside you,
Hold, support your tale.

And in so doing find mine,
The gift I give the world,
Holding, supporting, loving,
My spirit blows unfurled.

Rain, Life

Rain came
Carried me away in buckets of fire, snow and ice
Labelled me victorious
Slushed me with more
Washed me with less
Hid parts of me
Exposed others
Took the wind from my lungs
And lashed the coast of my being
In hurricane like breezes
Made from my own breath
Howling from within
Demanding change
A difference
Anything but this

Yet this is the reason I am here
And the solace my soul seeks

To deny it
Denies life

Life will not be denied

Sleep Well My Sweets

Sleep well my sweets…
I’ll travel with…
To all the peace there is…

Time slips through our being
Soul is free to fly
Spirit deep within us
Gently soars the sky

Move into your being
And there, you will find me

Goodnight sweetheart…
I’ll hold you close…

So fall into my arms
Feel the strength surround us both
From high ethereal charms
Know we’re loved beyond our ken
Held in high esteem
For roads we’ve traveled
Paths we’ve walked
Will bring us home again…

My Universal Prayer

In solitude and peace I lay,
With silence and with faith I pray,
To ask for Universal Truth,
Of inner knowing, beyond proof.

Love of soul, love of life,
Care for all, release the strife,
Be my guidance, be my heart,
Remind my purpose at each day start.

Help me to be more aware
Of choices, all potential there,
In every moment that I live,
Guide me of my soul to give.

Answer insight, love divine,
Give to life the strength that’s mine,
See beyond mind’s endless sweep,
Feel beneath for reasons deep.

Call to spirit, call to soul,
Call to life’s blood, call to know,
Far beyond the Earth’s confine,
Being’s heart and soul define.

Savour inner beauty deep,
Sense surrender as to sleep,
Share my soul, the greater part,
Sure of other half and heart.

Feel the beauty, feel the pain,
Live to never be the same again,
Direct with purpose to fulfill
The reason of my inner will.

Farewell and Hello! – (NaPoWriMo Day 30!)

And so to the last day of NaPoWriMo! The prompt? To write a poem of farewell.
Of course, this may be the end of April and poetry month,
but tomorrow is a new month and a new day,
so who knows what that may hold for us all?
How very exciting!

Do hope you all enjoy this – and a HUGE Thank You for all the likes and follows.
It is a privilege to have you pop in and say ‘Hi’ and a pleasure to share in your writings.
Long may we all stay bound by our love of words, meaning and purpose.
Hopefully, this is just the beginning…and I’ll see you all tomorrow…or soon! 🙂

So, to the poem:

A breath I breathe,
My final heave,
Farewell to the world.

Spirit’s stress,
Sweet caress,
Life so torn and twirled.

Return I will,
Before the trill
Of night birds singing hurled.

To write my way,
With poem’s sway,
And words so soft and curled.
