Perceive, remember, and descry…

Perceive, remember, and descry
The truth among the many weeds
That hide away from softer eye
To where the heart’s true river leads –
For love’s a day,
A year, a land,
And hope is ever
Near at hand.

Observer, discover, and inspect
The reasons why the night still aches:
And in the quiet times, reflect,
That love may bend, but never breaks –
For where we be
The echoes fall,
And hope is ever
Standing with
Us all

Own Your Words

Perhaps you’ve been made fun of;
You’ve felt lonely, and apart –
And maybe you’ve been criticized,
Or told you’re not that smart —

Perchance, you don’t know what’s yours,
Or why you ache at heart —
But own your words, your own words own:
For that is where
To start

Advice for A New Year

Feel the truth you’re supposed to feel,
Be the person you should be;
Keep it low and keep it real,
Occupy your destiny.

Show the love you’re supposed to show,
Be the difference you’d see made —
Then go where you’re meant to go,
Unencumbered,
Unafraid

See The Stars

On nights when we could see the stars,
We wondered at the glory;
Ablaze in constellations, each
With some amazing story.

The sky turned blank; our love a thing
To place in a museum —
But, oh, the stars, they’re still up there:
Even when we
Can’t see them

Scatter Your Love

Because it deserves a decent home.

Scatter your love to the winds,
Let it travel deep and wide;
Up the hils and down the dales,
Cross the highest mountainside

Let your love be pure and strong,
North or south or east or west:
Scatter your love to the winds,
Let it find its place
To rest
