My Words

I’ve been drifting through the days.
Harsh thoughts fill my mind with anguish.
Their talons cut through my limited defenses.

I know that my words are not enough.
I must stand strong and be true to myself.

My heart has its visions and dreams.
Hope grows when I see some progress.
The light around me is building.
I have found a way to live.

I will guard my insight with passion.

Couple dancing under a starry sky

Beyond the canopy of stars
Past the farthest galaxies
There is a mysterious place
Where love plants its potent seeds

They become fragrant flowers
They grow tall when the harvest is due
Celestial roses, they bring a bounty of light

I was lucky to be one
who danced in the garden.
Love’s seeds grow tall
They shine with hope and courage.

Low, Near the Horizon

Low, near the horizon,
I see a magnificent eagle.
It is my steadfast sentinel.
It shows me my path.

From a long-gone voice,
words echo in my soul.
Their tones recall a pure love.
Their accent lifts my heart.

I am climbing the last range.
I walk alone yet will stay strong.
My heart runs ahead today.
Can I share my echoes with you?

When I reach the end of the world,
I will know that I have followed the path.
I will see the eagle above me.
I will fill my heart with love.

Stride the ethereal trail
A path high above the mighty
They will not see us here
They are looking for the dregs

Do not be afraid
We are safe

I walk with you today
I hold your hand tightly
I keep you near me

We only need a few more days
