Go Into The Night By Your Guiding Light

In the dark recesses of the mind are the answers and confusions. The truths hidden in the darkest shadows where life struggles to shine, whereas the confusions have light cast upon them readily available to be brought forth as truth in disguise. Our truths have been buried by words and experiences throughout our lives. We tend to see the light on the easiest path to attain; by being agreeable and malleable to what others say, what others expect, and the consequences of how we handle situations because of these.

It is our job to be sure we see the real truths and not those disguises. To question what we know in the silent moments of the night; a time when it is just ourselves and the world is sleeping. Search… search for you, let the light of your soul show you the truths and quiet the ego.

I Am — Ever Changes

No matter what I or anyone else thinks of the person I was or I am…

“I” am is what brought me the best things in my life. Anyone different than the “I” at each moment would mean I would not have those things…

  • not my children
  • not my husband
  • not the love
  • not my puppies
  • not my friends

It is all because of the person I was at each of those moments. Good or bad, it was me and I am grateful for it all. I can honestly say I would not change what was. It would result in a loss of all I have!!

In Your Shoes I Never Walked

I have walked amongst the shadows alone,

I have had my share of pain and sorrow, loneliness and turmoil;

But I do not understand the darkest places you have been.

 

You always had a smile on your face,

You constantly offered words of wisdom and support,

Laughter and grace filled our conversations,

The sun seemed to be brightly shining in a world of utter darkness.

I didn’t see the hands of darkness grasping at your soul,

In your shoes I never walked…

 

We all have our crosses to bear –

I knew you had some heartache and agony,

But never did I understand your burdens were too heavy to bear.

Rest peaceful and know my heart…

I am sorry dear friend for the wisdom I lacked and your unending distress,

But know –

Your friendship will be sorely missed;

Too soon you’re gone and left a void in your place.

Forever, memories I will cherish til we meet again!
