Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Windsong
 


Today as I sit here, I see behind me broken dreams,
lost horizons and altered plans.
The sands of time have flowed slowly,
through the hourglass of time .
On my journey I have learned many things
all have been nurtured by winds of October
that taught me the art of grieving and of letting go





For as I have watched the beautiful ladies of summer
the aspen and the rose lose their glory and fade
I have also watched children grow and leave home,
saw love buried under mounds of grass marked
by rose colored stones that call to me to come
share their silence. I have shed many tears.





Mainly though, I have learned strength
to cope with the tomorrow that always
seems to happen . Each of them with it’s
own problems that I have to solve.
I have learned to cope, to function once again.





What it took me the longest time to learn
was to reach out , to ask for help.
to escape the valley of being alone
where despair is a daily ritual and
smiles are seldom seen...to trust again




Good Friends taught me that togetherness
still exists , that rainbows are still in style.
that still God hears my prayers and that Hope
floats like a glorious banner high above all lifes pain





I call this knowledge ...Gods gift, some call it wisdom.
Call it what you will ...it exists and it has been
nurtured by winds of October announcing
that my personal December is hastening
down lifes road just outside my silent room
while all around me life moves on.
