The Dance (midifile)
Regeneration

Anew the light splits darkness,
As another soul enters into life.
The call has come up from beyond,
For another to be brave an sure,
Wrapped in mortality so young and pure.

For some it is to gain a measure,
Others still to learn and treasure.
Living teaches us to die,
And dying teaches us the truth.
Every end has a beginning locked inside.

As days grow short and nights grow cold,
The seasons change; the young grow old.
As Spring has turned to Winter once again,
We hesitate before its chilling frost,
Fearing that, in change, all will be lost.

Some remain strong till the end,
And death comes quickly for them.
Still others turn as children, once again,
To await in a swiftening slowness,
The hour of their crossing through again.

Anew the light splits darkness.
As another soul parts the veil, returns.
For they have run their race, 
And having set their pace,
Again, meet their immortality face to face.

Sherry Gardner

Cherish the good memories past and look forward to the adventure called Tomorrow.
But above all... be kind to yourself today.

This is an absolutely gorgeous poem, Sherry!

Anew the light splits darkness,
As another soul enters into life.
The call has come up from beyond,
For another to be brave an sure,
Wrapped in mortality so young and pure.

Sherry,
I can't believe I nearly missed this. Thank you so much for such a wonderful poem. A reminder of the bigger picture does indeed bring comfort. Thank you.

It's still a very nice read.  This may sound somewhat sarcastic though, because knowing you as well as I do, I wonder if you do attach the same meaning to these words as I do:

"For some it is to gain a measure,
Others still to learn and treasure.
Living teaches us to die,
And dying teaches us the truth.
Every end has a beginning locked inside"

There is so much truth in your poetry, but sometimes even you fail to see it.

Love   and hugs

Mom

Sherry,
Thank you one more time.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.
