Cupid’s Little Arrows

 

As we approach Valentine’s day,… last week I was asked by one of the ladies I look after to purchase a card and post it to the one she admires from afar.. After some time of finding out who this secret love was I went about helping her choose her card.. She was so excited giving me a sloppy wet kiss. Upon returning home I helped her put her name upon it.. Just so there would be no mistake who the card was from..

I told a colleague who then went on for half an hour about her failed love life and all the trouble men had given her in her life.

This led me to writing this poem.. For each of us have had Cupid’s arrow of Love directed, aimed and caught, or rejected at some point in our lives… Cupid’s Arrows may start off full of love and have a happy ending, but some can be tipped with poison turning into bitterness and hatred

I saw it first hand in my own family as a child and witnessed the bitter fights, the happy make-ups, and the jealous accusations…..

One thing I have learnt throughout life is to LET GO! It is sad that upon reflection you can now see how the views of life and family have a hold on lives that surrounds us and has its effect especially if we are brought up in bitter surroundings.

If we are not careful it is easy to get caught up in hanging onto old wounds, or old thought patterns. It can be easier said than done sometimes to say ‘Let Go’ when one has been so hurt.

But  ‘Let Go’ we must. We must start and learn to ‘Live’ in the Now moment. And realise that our past has shaped who we are in the Now. And that we have come to experience our ‘Now’ by coming through the past. As all experiences good or bad have come to strengthen and teach us upon our life’s path.

Are there any mistakes in life? Or are we pre-ordained to make our mistakes in order to learn from? And do not those who we feel have hurt us or have been dealt an injustice, have we not lessons to gain from these episodes also? And what about all the people we have hurt along the way?

A friend of mine once said. “ There are no wrong turns in our roads of life, only detours” For All roads lead us HOME! So whether you learn to let go or hang on. We have to experience all to move forward and progress.

We must also remember that we may not all be at that stage of evolution in our souls progression where we want to ‘Let Go’. And by the very act of Not letting go, like my relation. She taught me my own valuable experience to Live in the ‘NOW!’

So here is my poem to all the Cupids out there…

Cupids Arrows

Cupid arrow’s does have a strong bow

Aiming for the heart, turning limbs to doe.

Cupids bow does have many strings

He never tells you the hurt that love brings.

Cupid’s hands do hold a tight rein

Squeezing you tight, feeling you’ll go insane.

Cupid’s arrow’s can strike any time

Cutting you deep, no reason or rhyme.

Cupid can be charming helpful and kind

Lulling you into that safe frame of mind.

Cupid can have a sinister side

A jealous streak that is a mile wide.

Cupid himself can feel insecure

And demand your attention to love and adore.

Cupid is tugging away at heart strings

As you bite your lip at the arrow that stings.

Cupid is loving and can be full of fun

An angel from heaven, your life just begun

Cupid can change and not be himself

Seeking comfort in a bottle upon the high shelf.

Cupid is hurting, yet cannot see clear

That he is the one whom you’ll always hold dear.

Cupid is the one we do give of our soul.

And is the only one to make us feel whole.

Cupids may come, and Cupids may go

The lessons of Love each of us know.

The next time Cupid his arrows do aim

Remember each one is never the same.

You never can tell when Cupid’s arrows will strike.

Some make you melt, while others you’ll fight.

But one thing we girls will agree and I’m sure

Is we’re glad that Cupid came to knock on our door.

    Wonderful poem and lessons Dreamwalker.
    Made me think not only of when I\’ve been hurt but when I have hurt and the guilt you feel when you do… Of my parents who were both really pushed into their marriage, my dad a widower still in love with the first wife, my mum in love with her Swedish beau but was kind of forced to give him up by her parents.
    Later as a widow my mum would talk about how she would see her first love the Swede ..my mum was psychic and had many extraordinary experiences. The strange thing even though there is no biological connection between me and the Swedish man..had a memory from a meditation of being a governess in Sweden and off flying over houses there.!
     
    I hope your lady\’s \’love\’ enjoys the card and sure you brought much delight to her in doing that.
    Love to you ele xx
