Poetry, creative writing and a desire to inspire….. Hebrews 11:1 – Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.

Requiem For A Wonderful Soul

I never once wondered about you

Something inside me just knew

I do not toss around adjectives casually 

Although you might not think it

“Wonderful” aptly fits you

A universe within a universe sharing the gifts within you

I find it amazing how you were overlooked 

But we have learned that a blind heart can blind the eyes

The fact that our paths crossed was a disguised blessing 

It didn’t take long to come to that realization 

I believe we both changed that day and in ways we have as of yet discovered 

Wherever you are I hope something catches your attention 

To let you know you are thought of fondly 

A blessing of which is never taken for granted

For sure someday, we will meet again

The Mission 


Prim and proper

Poised and ready to shine 

On a heart stirring mission 

A declaration of affection 

Dressed in their best 

Stunning elegance 

Light awaiting to shine

In the eyes of gratitude

The Effort Is Always There

pexels-photo-27853

Even if I fall short

The effort is always there

Staring at the glare from the streetlight

Home is not to far away

Twelve hour days

A hand full of hours at night

Dreams under my pillow keep me company

Hang my hopes on the moon until the morning

Was I a better man today?

Heart under review

Only God truly knows

Even if I fall short

The effort is always there

Golden

“Breathe,” a voice said

“No matter what, just breathe”

Deep, long, drawn out breaths

Until the grey started to have color

I began to have a new understanding of things as they were 

There was no great insight to be had

God said to trust Him and I did

Clarity came at a price though 

A small part of myself was taken away 

Maybe I didn’t notice at first, but eventually I did

My heart was golden, for how long?

Not sure, for now I will let things be as it may be

Set Free

Watching them rise 

Higher and higher 

Until they were barely in sight 

Some cried

Some just stood emotionless 

Some smiled and waved

The crowd began to break apart

Yet, some stayed and stared at the sky

It was a good release for most

Goodbyes aren’t easy
