             Awake

Awake, the sun has risen.
Look upon the bright new day.
You are free of nights' imprison,
Whether it be dream or nay.

Shed the cloak the blanket of night,
With its fantasies and dream.
Walk among the things of light,
That is the maker of the scheme.

Be not afraid how hard the way,
Stand and face the days unknown
Take advantage of the day,
And turn the unknown to known.

You will light a part of the dark,
With your add of candle of one.
It will add with the others a spark
And that is all, that can be done.

Reach out each moment do not waste,
The precious now does not wait.
It rides the wings of time posthaste.
For the sands of time there is no sate.

Just add your light, your candle of one
And you will have done what can be done.

'Just add your light, your candle of one'
That's a dynamite line, Seymour! I love it! You're right, of course, it is all that we can do!!

Seymour-
Marvelous.

'The precious now does not wait.'

I've learned it through tears ...
but, I've learned it.
This is a wonderful look at NOW !
My candle is lit ... and though the flame
may flicker ... it is burning in the now.

Sy,
One pale little twinkling star
When seen from earth afar
Becomes a little fish in heaven's sea
And shines on us so splendidly
And makes all the difference
Love ya

Beautiful Sy.

A lighted candle guides my way,
Through my darkend path.
I know not where this light does lead,
But follow it I must.
For in the end, there is the one,
Who'll wash off all the dust.

Let your light shine my friend.

My mother always said to "build all my roads on today"~

Your poem reinforces that belief~
