Absorbed

Blind my eyes with your delight,
make me warm,
fill me with light.

Bright essence shine around me,
hug me tight,
guide me to see.

Add your spirit to my soul,
steer the wheel,
take full control.

Illuminate every path,
leave all dark,
far in the past.

Wipe the tears that swiftly flow,
hold my hand
and help me grow.

Kiss me softly on my head,
expand love,
so it can spread.

Carry hopes up to the sky
mend my wings
teach me to fly

Sprinkle peace from up above
bless this world
with divine love

Value

You cover my mouth
I lower my eyes,
You talk and you laugh.
I feel like a sigh.

I swallow so hard
and walk very light,
you strut and mingle
with nothing to hide.

My best friend is me,
I am all that I have.
To know myself better,
is my master plan.

I take a deep breath
then slowly exhale,
my strength emerges,
take life for a sail.

My head held up high,
smile placed on my face,
I conquer it all,
with feet still in place.

The last deed to do
wave goodbye to you,
releasing your views
lets my dreams come true.

Shield my eyes,
mute my voice,
walk through life
with no choice.
Missing home
though still there,
this new world
seems unfair.

People seem
extra cold,
many try
to fit molds.
Inventing
quiet rules,
silent thoughts
can feel cruel.

Draw my light
from inside,
spread kindness
out world wide.
Wear a smile
on my face,
replicates,
fills with grace.

Look around,
sing and walk,
positive
when I talk.
Inner love
soon reflects,
all the joy
I project.

Clears

What goes up
must come down,
even clowns
can own frowns,
even snakes
shed their skin,
letting go
all old sins.

Black and white
can shade grays,
opposites
fun at play,
skip around
sun and rain,
adding ease
to all pain.

Find True Self
in your eyes,
releasing
your disguise,
look beyond
what is shown,
opaque paths
start to glow.

Mope or fly,
laugh and cry.
This whole world
is your ride.
Feed the good
just decide,
to hold light
by your side.

Suddenly

Without a clue
out of the blue,
the old me died
reborn all new.
All past mistakes
proved to be true,
knowledge was earned
from what I knew.

Out of the blue
everything changed
the life I lived
was rearranged.
All thoughts I had
were interchanged,
my preferences
were seen as strange.

Without a clue
to what comes next,
training my heart
not to expect.
Coaching my eyes
to not project,
letting my soul
shine and reflect.

Without a clue
out of the blue,
every old sight
formed unique views.
Every past fail
carries bright hues,
lessons were learned
from which I grew.
