In this Moment Here with Me

We despair over the unknown and yet it is there that we are free . It could cage you

if thats what you choose or set you free to be

in this moment here with me .

We surrender to fear and like an expert jewel thief it robs us of life . It’s not the fear that guides and protects , but the one that steals your heart away .

We live so as to love and to love means to risk it all . Mind , heart and soul .

We despair over the losses of our loves . The family , friends and the  ones unknown to us that are suddenly gone  from life .

Left to our worries and left with our kind thoughts of hugs and laughter and of days shared in sunshine and in rain .

We touch each other’s  existence and must remember  that it is so much more .  It is not in judgement that lifts a life but in kindness that an eternal thread lives on .

In this moment here with me your life will live on .

The Door

Will you walk along with me ….towards the door ?

Yes  I will .

I will hold your hand . will you hold mine ?

Yes I will .

Oh wait !  Just a moment  . I’m suddenly not so sure .  If you’re scared then I’m scared too .

what to do ? What to do ? !

Gentle smiles and quiet glances soothed away the fears .  For now…  the way was clear .

I could only go as far as the door .  You had to do the rest .

Stepping back to let you go  and  leaving tears  upon your cheek .

Our adventure began long ago  and the time has come to start again .

Sweet peace to you .'Out of the Storm'    soft chalk pastel   2012 #10
