There I Am

There I am in my robe
Watching closely as the earth disrobes
All it’s ugly, nasty things
Rising up in beauty
Filled with summer and with spring.
Winter’s cold, bitter hate
Melted here, no distaste
Only warm, fulfilling beams
Creating more lovely dreams.

Bless the ground I stand upon
Know it gives me faith true and strong
Trusting I’ll be here long after
Spring flowers fade and go
But memories of what has been
Or yet to come
Will hold my own sheltering robe so tight
That I know I will be safe
On earth’s soft ground tonight.

Tonight

February 26, 2019

Treacherous feelings I harbour
Tonight
Anger seething in my blood
Tonight.

Each footstep taken
Keeps me in a raging hold
Tonight.

No answer, no salvation
In the black, bleak darkness
Tonight.

Holding On, Holding Tight

December 27, 2018

Bright Light ~ Photo by Brent

Holding on, holding tight
Steeling to make it thru the night
While thinking of basking
In the broad daylight
Making no matter of the matters
That matter tonight.

Sitting Down

Sitting down
To think of something
Intelligently bright and just right
For the discussion I’m having
With myself tonight.

Decisions

August 23, 2017

Making decisions
Some I don’t like
Making them in darkness
And board daylight.

Answering all questions
That’ll make things right
Make people believe in me
Today, tonight.

I don’t have all answers
Still decisions
Decisions will be made
By tonight.

Deep In The Rest

June 22, 2015

Deep in the rest of sleep tonight
My soul does dream so vividly
Life is full, time is dear
Honoured by those held so near.

I awaken rested, never knowing
Time has passed
Troubles solved and circumstance
Seems not to be the threat I feared
So horribly.

No one drew or threw a veil
Upon my sight
Just goodness does
And will prevail.

I slumber now in perfect rest
No concern, no distress
Awakening to light cascading down
Upon my life where goodness
Does and will abound.
