Embracing The Light Within


Ths sun filtered through the ivory curtains
bringing with it a brand new day
and she awoke with a sense of peace
a new resolution now lighting her way.

Inside she felt a certain sort of calmness
no longer was she afraid to face the light
but rather she reached out to embrace it
her visions now clearly within her sight.

She felt her  strength abounding
knowing not from whence it came
but she knew from this day forward
she would never be the same.

She strolled past the blooming orchards
to sit in her favorite wicker chair
no tears were falling from the willows
or from this lady, oh so fair.

She had made peace with herself
awaiting the coming of each 'morrow
for she had finally released the pain
that once held her in loves sweet sorrow.

The beauty of this is all of the parts, the
emotions that are held at check but could be
unleased at any second...

Is but a momentary calm my friend....something
says to me that it is...Might I be right?  
Might I be wrong....  Where is that rascal?

Lovely this..
lovely you.
Hugs & Luv, Nancy

Now - while the leaves still dance on the wind
While the moon and the clouds come spinning
Will you whisper my name again?
Again..and again....
