It Simply Is

In one given moment
on a certain day
a light clicks on
life becomes crystal clear

Contentment carried
its weight, yet the road
of life shadows the river’s
endless changes

Choice on occasion sits at the helm
with supportive excitement
Anticipation follows in the wake
but not lagging at all

However fate at times
lands in the driver’s seat
leaving us only to react
to our own heart’s ability

Abounding Faith

 tulips by sabrina FINAL EDIT

You’re a never ending roller coaster ride
taking me to the highest level of contentment
and then soaring downhill together
to my lowest moments of worry

You sit with me through plummeting tears
as my sadness whispers uncontrollably
and I’m forever wishing the answers
would arrive soon all wrapped up and pretty

You are compassionate, so I give you
my trials that steal sleep from me in the night
now bringing peace to my emotions and
calming the control I no longer want

Whether the road is smooth or uneven
You’ll always have a special place
in the pocket resting beside my heart
and I’ll never let you drift away

Around the Bend

I live on the corner
of happy and content
but, sometimes my mind lingers
into the neighborhood of
melancholy

Living with joy
would be a better choice
yet, often, I find the door locked
and no matter how loudly I knock
it won’t budge

 It takes courage to push
once in awhile,
make your presence known
that you are strong
and you belong

 nurturing your roots
wherever they may grow

Heartbeats

heart necklace

My heart beats with a joyful rhythm
thinking only of you in every spectrum

remembering my life before you sauntered in
is nothing but a speck of dust from back then

I wasn’t looking to fill a void of any kind
my world was content with no ties to bind

but now as my head lies on your shoulder
with you beside me, nothing could be better

and as your arm warms me in its caress
My heart whispers to you its thankfulness

Momentarily

While walking down the street,
I couldn’t help but feel peace,
listening to the rustling leaves

without the company of cars.
Then something pungent struck me,
so tangible, I could reach out

and touch…the fragrance of wealth,
and for a fleeting moment,
eyes slowly blinking,

I felt a sense of yearning.
Perhaps, there are those moments
where wishes aren’t so Heavenly,

but very earthly, indeed.
However, the hunger subsided
  as rapidly as it came to be

and I sighed, contentedly,
knowing God has provided me
with everything I truly need
