This Poem I dedicate to you Lynn.
Share your Gift of LOVE!
This empty space in my heart greaves for something lost.
The tears sting at my eyes, at the weight of my own cross.
I choose to carry this burden, whose weight now holds me down,
I choose to look at the dark clouds and wear my thorns for a crown.
I would like everyone to to like me, but I know that cannot be.
I would like everyone to live and love in harmony.
Along life’s ruggid pathway, discoveries you will find
And they sometimes are unpleasent and upset your piece of mind.
To discover of yourself your not all you’d like to be
That like others you can critisize and act most selfishly.
If I admit to my discovery, then maybe I’m halfway there.
Maybe here lies the answer to my now familiar prayer.
The prayer of who am I, and on what road do I tread?
The pathway to discovery is to myself I’m led.
I must learn to look within, and accept my imperfections
And cast away the thorns, that have impeded my directions.
And look to find the Light, which shines out in the dark.
I first must find myself, Yes maybe I’ve made a start.
We are told before we can love others, we first must love ourself.
This is all we need, this is our true wealth.
So Fill that empty Space of your Heart with Love,
Dry those tears, break out a smile, share this gift of Love,
Then maybe we will discover the pathway we tread is right.
So cast away the dark clouds and Look forward to the ‘Light’.
