Closed Eyes

When I look 
When I listen
 I close my eyes

I feel

It is here
It is behind me

Beside me

Inside me

It is whispering
“Listen with your mind”

Ears can not hear
The hauntingly soft sound
The whisper which rings in my mind
Echoing louder than thought

“Listen with your heart”
“…hear my call,
I am here.
Look for me with closed eyes”

“Find me,
I am here
In the eye of the mind
With the voice of your soul”

It never left…
Life is different with the knowledge
Passes by on a contrastive journey

Between ignorance and understanding

What the implications are for choosing to listen…

Are yet to be learned, simply live and listen…

Do not experience pain
Do not yearn for the past

The past is a trick of desire
Desire is the trick of the mind
The mind is the trick of time
Time is the trick of space
Space is infinite as is life

Experience life with semi closed eyes and an open soul
Experience the soul with an unyielding grasp

When I think of it
I feel sorrow partly for it
I feel sorrow and pain for myself

To want more time with it
Is that wrong?

Now I wait with closed eyes, for that is the only place I will feel it
Behind closed eyes is where I can hear it
Behind closed eyes I can see it, in my infinite mind

For eternity…

Can you feel it? Do you know what it is?

Remind me

Remind me of the time

I failed to listen to the ticking minutes, I only saw the days.

Remind me of the place

I failed to hear the thundering rain, I only tasted the lightening.

Remind me of the moments

I failed to watch the meanings of  winter, I only heard the laughter of spring.

 

The  moments, places and times filled with light and senses. Emotions and tears. Remind me of all I missed

Infinite

Life is a road, our futures foretold

In a mirror we peak, our destiny we seek

What we call our journey is perhaps an adventure

Life is the vision, forever an endeavor

The distance seems long, at times the timing seems wrong

For our life is written on pages not given

In the book only He reads
In the library only He seeds

For God grants us life
For God grants us strife

We make it and take it
We break and forsake it

We sow it
We grow it

If only we know it

What have you but a Journey?
What have you but one life?

What say you today?

The one who says this is all?

What say you today?

The one who claims to know the meaning of the fall?

Our Journeys will unfold
Our lives will come to One

And in that time
We shall see

And in that time

All shall be

We live but one Life…
That one life universal
That one Life is but one…

What is one?

One is alone

One if Infinite

Do you know who I am?

I am here in your mind

the light of your desires

the solace of your dreams

 

I am here in your soul

The greatness of your spirit

The fullness of your heart

 

I am your intentions

the power you wish to hold

the strength you wish to be

 

I am your visions

the happiness of your soul

the clarity you wish to see

 

Do you know who I am?

I am you

you are me

we are one

we are free

Now do you know me

Birthdays

 

With you gone there have been less smiles for me to see

There have been fewer hugs

Fewer moments of happiness 

Fewer twinkles in the sky

I remember the twinkles in your eyes

 

With you gone there have been less memories to make

There have been fewer jokes

Fewer looks of dis*approvals 😉

Fewer moments of tricks to play

I remember the tricks you would play

 

With you gone there have been three less Birthdays

Three less Fathers Days

Almost three years less here with me

Doesn’t mean the end of smiles between us three

Perhaps the time is shared between

 

A new day before

Breaks the waves on distant shores

Yet the dawn has woken anew

Heaven and Angels are waiting with you

You smile and wave farewell

The birthday has passed

The memories swell

AS the tears to bid you 

Happy Birthday

I will always remember you…

I will always Love you

Be grateful for birthdays, you never know how many years  you have to share with the people you love… make them special.

Obscured Night

As light gets shrouded
And silence veiled

As dark gets brighter
And wind has failed

We walked in shadows
Our minds a cage

We flew in moonlight
Our soul won’t age

For dark once gathered
On a forsaken stage

The light, the dark, play harmoniously
Written words of a sage

The night obscured
Once dark is now pure

Our senses gathered
From a tremulous tour

As consciousness woke
From words we spoke

We found our souls not with our mind
We found our soul had escaped the beginn
ings of time
