(Dedicated to a friend)
I'm writing to you to say
how much I love you.
I saw you as you were
walking alone yesterday.
I waited for you to say
come with me-over here
I wanted to join you
to kneel and pray.
As evening grew near
I gave you a sunset
to close your day; but
only your fears appeared.
So I gave you my grace;
placing my hand upon
your head and shoulder;
you didn't recognize my face.
I watched as you fell asleep
resting beneath the covers,
so I sprinkled moonlight on your
satin pillow and angel face.
As you awakened-I saw your pain,
rushing-to face yet another day.
But you didn't notice my tears
for you, mixed in with the rain.
Again today-you looked so sad,
alone, and confused;
It makes my heartache
because I understand.
I know it's hard for I was once there.
We will always be here-Father and I;
just call our name and we will
show you truth in answer to prayer.
My words I express in the lustrous grass,
request the songs of birds that sing,
breath it into the essence of flowers,
whisper into the leaves of shimmering mass;
I perfume the mountain air,
clothe you with the warmth of the sun,
splash aura in morning dew,
placing the waves upon your hair.
My dear sweet dove
please know how much I care,
for all these things I send to you;
All messages to you of my love.
It's your decision and because of this
I will wait...because I love you, dear.
Almost all our misfortunes in life come from the wrong notions we have about the things that happen to us.
