Cycle of Life

Though the world looks dreary

Though the leaves are fallen

Life still goes on

Richly Blessed

Stop, look around you.

Blessings come in many sizes,

How many do you see?

And how many are unseen?

Big and small blessings,

That live within your heart?

Treasure them all.

For if you have even one,

You are rich my friend!

Your Vestige

Fall Leaves

Time and life will take their toll.

They will leave a lasting imprint.

What is to be your end goal?

Time and life will take their toll.

The body dies but not the soul.

Consider this as you do your stint.

Time and life will take their toll,

They will leave a lasting imprint.

Who am I?

Universe

I am a million thoughts,

Images and feelings,

Held together by hopes,

Dreams and will.

I am a broken heart,

Mending.

A dreamer, chasing.

A child, exploring.

I am youth and old age,

Combined in mind and body,

Held together by God.

Ephemeral Joy

Brown Leaf in Fall

In the days of my youth

When time was of no essence

No thoughts for the morrow

Entered my lofty world

As I grew vibrantly

In the fresh breezes of life

Enjoying the sun’s kiss 

Until touched by Autumn’s breath

I felt the brevity of life
