Guardian Angel’s Goodbye

I just came to say

That I got my wings today

Won’t be long before I’m gone to stay

In the place where I’ve earned my way

I’ll walk with you one more day

To be sure on your own you’ll do ok

I’ll stay with you one more night

To be sure on your own you feel all righ 

Remember me in your heart

And remember me in your mind

So when the rest of this world seems so unkind

Consolation you will always find

And you won’t ever feel that you’ve been left behind

Know that I don’t feel sad

I’m only very glad

That in you I did invest

And because of you I can finally fly

To the peace beyond the sky

So you don’t have to cry

When I say goodbye

Sands in the hourglass

Seem to fall so slow

Waiting for relaxation from a glass of Merlot, eventually it does overflow
Waiting for an understanding that does not ever show
Waiting for the night to take thee off to sleep

To sleep thee never goes

Waiting for the moment that’s right

Only to create another plight 

Waiting for the sun to rise up in clear or cloudy skies
Waiting for the answers to oh, so many why’s

The answers do come

not all at once but only some

Faith tells thee there are more answers to come 

Wait no more

For faith build’s the bridge

That leads thee to the right door

 A night without waiting
pray to the Lord the soul to keep

And then fall fast to sleep

Waiting is not always the thing to do

But many a time we have to

It is why patience is a virtue

When waiting for one’s return  

Or for something thee does yearn

Waiting is hard to endure

For time taunts

 Making waiting become something of the obscure

Sanity to Me

Sanity to me is
Bravery in the face of fear
Sanity to me is
Listening to your heart body and mind
When no one else will hear

Sanity to me is
Letting out and facing every tear if alone or if someone’s near

Sanity to me is knowing the last thoughts and feelings of a loved one unfairly taken from me and the rest of us here

Sanity to me is

Not sympathy
But is the understanding
It’s a finding commonality
A comrade in the tested strength  of trial and tribulation that others too are withstanding
Sanity to me is
Having something and someone good to believe in
No matter how much hurt trouble or burden on my shoulders I’m heavin’

My sanity is being a soldier by my own right and always fighting the see, speak, and hear no evil, the right fight

Sanity to me is
Having faith stand or fall
In God in Heaven and Heavenly Guardian Angels that come to call

Sanity to me is

Standing up for what I know is right
A knowing, a fighting for the truth
Even when standing falsely accused
Leaves me standing alone and it hurts just as bad as being physically, mentally, or emotionally abused

sanity to me is that natural found empathy
For others who struggle the same or worse as me
Sanity to me is
a random act of kindness an empathetic blindness to the what or the who

if nothing else in the moment I knew, that he or she needed that act of  kindness from me or who?

Sanity to me is
Writing and making my voice heard

And yet

its just as well Communicating without a word
Sanity to me is always visible in the eyes

Its taking a meditating moment to close them and pray or seek answers to all the whys

Sanity can feel like a burden sometimes and beating this feeling is better than going down with the evil that chimes

Sanity to many is staying sane
Through chronic illness, depression, emotional, and physical pain.

Sanity is knowing when to let it rain never giving up on your goals, dreams, and the things God’s good intentions gain

Then knowing when to start anew just by a tap on your shoulder, a heavenly whisper, the way the wind blows gently and the way the light shines on you

Sanity to me

Is a worthwhile talk for me, for someone, while taking a walk in the weather of choice that soothes anger and gives it voice

Even if I’m down and  have been for a while Sanity to me is a burst of  laughter and or a  subtle smile

Sanity is a loved one, just someone who understands,  or a friend that sticks with you when you need encouragement to go that needed extra mile

Sanity to many is being heard through an instrument and or the voice in a song and playing whenever somethings right or somethings wrong and the best part is the understanding when its heard and others sing along

Carry me away
On the spirit of the wind
I wanna get to the place I call serenity
When I get there I can forget
Anything that I regret
In serenity I’ll no longer shed sad tears
And I’ll be rid of all my fears
Serenity is where the rain
Can wash away pain
In every raindrop there is a power
It’s a soul cleansing shower
I’ll leave all my troubles behind
And in serenity I will find
Tranquility and peace of mind.

Happily Ever After

Darling if I were the Sea
I’d want you to be the river That flows to me
To keep this river from running dry
I’d be the rain that falls from the sky
This is one way of saying How hard I’d try
For happily ever after You and I

When I look Into your eyes I see
Happily ever after looking back at me
So I’m saying that for you I’d be
Everything I can be
For happily ever after’s in my destiny

I’ll be the garden from which you grow
Enchanted with my love for you
I’d make all your dreams come true
Baby there’s nothing I wouldn’t do
For happily ever after me and you

Whatever you give me
I’ll give you something more
For you baby my hearts an open door

If I had wings I’d fly for you
I’d capture every star in the sky for you
That’s how hard I’d try
For happily ever after you and I

Baby you mean so much to me
Your like an Angel I feel so Blessed you see
All my love vested in thee
Would open the doors to what would be
An everlasting ecstasy
Happily ever after
You and me

Though I’m sure of where I stand
I’m not sure of where I’m going
What I do know is
No matter how far I go
through out my journey I’ll encounter
A  high mountain or steep hill
No matter how hard either is to climb
No matter what I will.
For I know that on the other side
Stands a purpose I must fulfill

She Is

She is like a reel
Forever un-winding
Powerful prose
To the one she hopes she’ll soon be finding
The one who’s like a book without a binding
The one who truly see’s her colorful spirit
And doesn’t find it blinding…

Only a fool would dare deceive or miss-rule
Who has been bestowed onto thee
As a powerful creative tool

You say love is against your law
And to friendship I am restricted
Well there’s somethin’ I wanna confess to
I feel more than friendship for you
So if lovin’ you is a crime
Then I’m ready to be convicted
Put away on all counts of you
Is where I wanna be
So baby guilty is what I wanna plea
Then you can lock me up
But baby hold on to the key
’cause wasted time is somethin’
This love aint gonna be

You see

By the time my sentence is through
You’ll feel all my love for you 

 When you feel how it’s so right
very strong and true
You’ll have a change of heart and mind
And this law of yours
You’ll no longer stand behind
’cause you’ll feel the same way for me too.

Writers Block


My blood runs colder
With every written word
For my creativity is somehow stifled
And the voice in my writing
Goes for now un heard
I get a real strong chill
When my soulful creativity
I cannot fulfill
My soulful creativity is like a contract to which I am bound
But now I find myself stifled
By those I am around
And food for soulful expression
Is getting harder to be found
Thus, my soul is not truly free
And its my soul that makes up almost all of me
This life really takes toll
When my soul doesn’t feel whole
I Just gotta keep this writers block
From weakening my souls clock

– Sheryl K Platzer-Sartin Copyright © 2008 



I’ve made no promises in my life
’cause I’ve been given no guarantees
There’s barely any emotion in my life
Just a few devotions and used to be’s
It seems things are goin’ no where
So I’m feeling kind of lost
I’ve no one to run to
And my happiness its cost
I need a way to make amends
So once again I can smile
I’m just a cold and lonely me
With a misunderstood style
If it took a license to live happy
Then mine would be expired
’cause all I feel is tired
Tired of being misunderstood
How many times must I speak out
Only to go unheard?
How much longer must I feel 
It’s useless to utter a word?
How many more will look at me
And my face be all they see?
How many more will look deeper 
Sayin’ they wanna go through life 
 Lovin’ everything about me
Only to leave me standin’ here
Watchin’ them go on without me?
How many more will say
In me they believe
When in fact they really doubt me?
Do what I have to do
In order to see things through…
Normally I would
But too many times I’ve had to
And now I’m just too tired
Tired of being misunderstood.

Real Love

I lost me today
Don’t know where I went or if away is where I’ll stay

He took me from me
Broke me down then chased me away
Now my weaknesses are in my place
And it feels as if here they’ll stay

I’ve fallen prey to his every whim

Did I give me to him?
I’ve stuck with him thick or thin I’ve grown wise
I haven’t really lost me I’ve just learned to compromise

Did he too feel grim? As if he lost him
When he fell prey to my every whim?
I haven’t lost me I should have known
That together he and I have grown

Real love is like a roller coaster ride
With ups and downs from which you can’t hide
I am still me with more feeling inside

A Piece of Peace

A Piece Of  Peace
Our Heavenly Father
Has bestowed onto me
A peace that I want others to see
When in need of finding their own
For if we have no peace within
There will be no lasting peace
In this world we live in
And its high time true peace begin
For this world is getting colder
And it’s foundation’s wearing thin
Copyright ©2008 – Sheryl K. Platzer-Sartin

Strength Within

We both know where to seek shelter
When cold winds blow
But this time
I’m much too tired to go

I know you know
What its like to be
Trapped in a place where you don’t wanna be
Down to your last feather
Trying to be free

We’re alike instinctively
Compared to others
We are quite distinguished
And we must never let ourselves be relinquished

I lay bare before thee
So you can clearly see
They’ve taken my last feather away from me

Sparrow Inner spirit of me
I am tired and cold
And I need you to rescue me
For right now
There’s only one place I feel I want to be
It’s where the wind is all I hear
And the sky is all I see
Sparrow my inner spirit
Rescue me

When I look into your eyes
I can feel my spirit rise
There’s something about you
That’s like magic to me
Now I always crave
The erotic things you do to me

There’s not a night I don’t dream
Of us together in ecstasy
It’s so hard to ignore
This strong affinity
All yours is what I want to be

Look inside my heart
In it you’ll surely see
The desire for you
That burns within me
It’s like a caged bird
Waiting to be free
I hate to think you and I could never be

Take me in your arms
Set this desire free
And I’ll live up to the words
That you first said to me
The words…
“I’ll be good to you,” “if you’ll be good to me”

Soul Mates

Soul Mates

You’re always in my heart and mind
For our souls are intertwined 

Silver and gold
Will be the paths that together we unfold
To have and to hold
Our love will never grow old

In this wonderous state
The two of us patiently wait
For the other to find the key
To what we’ll know as our destiny
For we are soul mates eternally

In my mind’s eye
I picture an uphill climb
Some downhill slides

A journey over a long winding bumpy road
With a mountain or two to climb

A Journey with barriers to break through
Old bridges to burn
And new bridges to build

A long journey
A journey with grace as my guide my teacher
My journey creating a new road 
A road on which I must leave my mark 
By carefully laying the tracks of my footsteps
Should my children choose to follow

Her Song

There were those who listened for the beating of her heart
And found it was hard to hear it
Some said she was cold and empty
This didn’t bother her though
For if they knew and used the right touch they’d know
That through her heart something warm does flow
Her esoteric and powerful loving spirit

There were those who listened for the soul in her song
Some judged it soul-less but she still stayed strong
For with her power she knew
This came only from the lost who
Always listened heard and understood wrong

Someone Murdered My Son on the Seventeenth Day

Someone murdered my Son on the 17th day

With plotting and planning he took his life

In a most vicious way


What’s going wrong out there today?

Sirens are sounding from every which way

What’s really going on out there today?

Now who’s world’s being turned upside down with dismay?

The church bells toll much louder now

In a more meaningful way


“Another life’s been taken today”

Is all the news starts out to say

The wrong judges are making judgments

On the wrong judgment day


If I said things didn’t affect me any different I would be lying

The birds’ songs often sound like crying

And this world’s madness has become more trying


Someone murdered my Son in September, on the 17th day

At least that’s when they found him

And pronounced him passed away

The premonition I dreamt of the awful day

Seems as though it is with me to stay

Because of this, to his murderer I say

The time is well past for you to pay

No, not revenge

Just the real judge judging you on your judgment day

Not a finger will I lift

This is more like a reckoning gift

With each word that I now write

You will never sleep good another night

For the darkness, like you made it his

Will forever be your plight

And somehow I have the feeling to say

My son’s isn’t the only life you’ve taken away

For this your demons will haunt you night and day

Every time you close your eyes

A pain and fear will cut deep

Dead or alive you’ll sew what you reaped


My heart and soul does scream holler and cry

To what replays over and again in my mind’s eye

And wakes me at night, in a cold sweat I shout out

Of the premonition I dreamt and could do nothing about

Someone murdered my son on the 17th day

All I can do is sit and wonder why

While I wish him away


To every Parent of murdered children or child I mean what I say

May God Bless you and keep you

Come what may

Aumikko Kaliel Morgan May 11, 1988 – Infinity
There were many miles between us
That never did keep us apart
For you and I were always close together at heart
In spirit we were bonded by our worded art
Even now you are not far away
For you are the stars at night
And in the brightest light of day
No matter what some may say
No one, no thing stands in the way of our Love
Especially now that you are with
The Mighty Lord above
You called me your Angel
And I called you mine
Well now we are only strengthened
Through our Lord Devine
And all the hearts you touched on earth
Now upon them you can shine
Forever Love,
Your Mother / Your Angel

Basking in the sun that’s shining into my porch 


Listening to the songbirds who have returned from their winter places


It’s like Heavenly Angelic song to my ears


Watching as the melting of the snow continues


With every drop glistening in the sun


 A once rigid winter now slowly, softly melts away.


Like I do


A small piece of me with every day


Slowly melting away


I was once strong too


Goodbye winter Hello Spring 


I welcome the change of seasons


With a wind of change that this time caresses me as I welcome it too




This Change 


I must accept it

And I do

Restless Dream

I’m in the middle of nowhere

Trying to get to where I want to go

The roads are long and like a maze

The air and sky a haze

I feel like I’m going nowhere fast

I’m in the middle of nowhere

Trying to get to where I want to go

No one, nothing around

I call out

My voice

Its echo the only sound

My echo is haunting

Seemingly taunting “I told you so”

Whatever it is I don’t want to know

I’m in the middle of nowhere

Trying to get to where I want to go

Am I going nowhere fast?

How much time do I have?

How long will this last?

I’m in the middle of nowhere

With something I can’t get past

I am so vital
I have less
I am humbled

 I am so vital 
Believe it or not I am there with you always

In your heart soul 
And  in your mind
I am so vital
To me
life’s meaning’s a recital

     I am so vital
        Like the beating of the heart
I am so vital
Like Heavenly light
I glow
 My vitality through you will flow

I am so vital
 So humbled
When I listen I really hear
 I really see through mine eyes
My understanding and empathy’s clear
I am so vital
For you I am here

Counting Feathers

Keep your eye on the sky
The sea-gull, the eagle, the hawk
You hear their squawk
I hear their cry
I keep my eye on the sky
The sparrow, the pigeon, the finch, the dove
They too are humble and filled with peace from above
They all come around but don’t stay for long
They leave behind a sign
A feather
A song
Keep your eye on the sky
I’m counting feathers
And I want to fly
Ever hear the song the white dove sings?
A calm and a comfort is what its song brings
I’m counting feathers to build an Angels wings
I keep my eye on the sky
I see the clouds dancing not just drifting by
They dance with the wind
Symbolizing the how, when, and why
I’m counting feathers for when I die

The whispers of wind
The cloud dresses the sky
i-freebird and I want to fly

That’s why

I’m counting feathers
From every bird that sings
I’m counting feathers
For when I’ve earned my wings

Glimmer of Light

A Glimmer of light

On wall a Shimmer

A Glimmer of light

Simmering candle of night

Guide through restless plight

All is well

Glimmer of light

Through Earth’s hell

Glimmer of light bright with God’s Love

Always reminding us what we’re made of

Angels guiding when push comes to shove

Glimmer of light shining bright

Is just like manifold insight

Into wrong and to right

Glimmer of light

The soul’s song

A Heavenly Angel

Strength against wrong

A Glimmer of light

Like a colorful spirit

Word in a song

Only blessed hear it

Glimmer of light to deserve

Path to purpose to serve

A Glimmer of light

On Shoulder a shimmer

Beside Myself

I know it sounds sort of crazy to say
Everything was going its usual way
Until I saw me beside myself today

Couldn’t have been double vision
Seems more like my spirit of me was trying to make a decision
Maybe I did or did not follow some guideline or provision

Some step I should or should not have taken
Maybe a sign of my having many times been forsaken
I am not for sure but either way

My spirit tried to leave or tell me something it had to say
All I know is I saw me beside myself today
I always trust my instinct and look to my heart and spirit  for a new start
 For the  heart spirit of me creates my atmosphere, mood and art

I gave my heart and soul to the Lord and the one I love
So I’m not taking care of me is the only answer I can think of

I saw me beside myself today
Its time to get in touch with my inner spirit in a big way

With the Light I Am Still

I have seen the light


I have seen light at the end of this tunnel


A very long tunnel


I am still

In The Light 

I am


I am grateful to God for everyday

I am counting feathers

At the other end of this long tunnel

I will spread my wings and fly


Though darkness tries to overcome 

I am still


I am still in the light


I am


In the light I am still

I will keep moving on

I will fly

For God is the light I am


I will make my flight

No matter what my plight

Everything, everyone has a history
Roads get traveled
Bridges get crossed and some bridges burned
There’s always a road that leads back to somewhere
Many new bridges built and lessons learned

The winding roads I have traveled

New ground only spiritual truths found

Between closed doors and open doors I’ve been torn
Many a path I have worn
Forsaken feelings become gray clouds crying out loud
I tire of my ways
So many trying days

Spiritual belief and higher power relief
Tends my grief
I did not ask to be ill
I am inside myself and still
Hang on to strength and will
Upon me Heavenly Angels and Mercy spill

Everything, everyone has a history
Roads get traveled
Bridges get crossed and some bridges burned
There’s always a road that leads back to somewhere
Many new bridges built and lessons learned

The winding roads I have traveled

New ground only spiritual truths found

New roads paved my footsteps pound
Only God hears my footsteps sound
Angels all around
One door closed
At the open door I’m found
To be somebody’s Angel
I am bound

Everything, everyone has a history
Roads get traveled
Bridges get crossed and some bridges burned
There’s always a road that leads back to somewhere
Many new bridges built and lessons learned

The winding roads I have traveled

New ground only spiritual truths found

I am counting feathers
The Heavenly Angel I mirror
My fate no longer furor

Life’s Messages

  • You hurry through life

Believing that’s how everything goes

While you miss something more important

Sitting right under your nose

You worry what everyone thinks of you

Of what you have  and how much it grows

But you’re so busy trying to impress

That the real you never shows

Then one day something happens

A most critical event

That makes you stop and wonder

Where the time and real meaning went

In the presence of the unknown

You think your whole life has been blown

Its time to sit back and learn the lesson

Out of the event your being shown

Sometimes I see

Sometimes I see you
Sometimes I see me
Sometimes I see we

In what is destine to be
Sometimes I see through

The words that you make do
Though I don’t want to
I see the opposite of what you say is true
Then sometimes I see you

And all the good that you can do

For you, for me, and everyone else too
I don’t even try to

But when I look at you I see through

You and anyone else who doesn’t reason with what’s true.

Sometimes I see sometimes I see

Sometimes I see me

I see the soul mates we are meant to be

Yeah sometimes I see through

Sometimes I see lies

So I look deeper for what’s true

And that’s when I see

Yeah, that’s when I see you

Inside and out you’re the one who

Is meant to face my destiny with me
Good and bad baby

Soul mates we will be

What am I to do
Sitting here staring at a picture of you
Wondering when the time will come to be 

That you’re sitting here holding me, oh baby
sometimes, yeah,

Sometimes I see

My world without you because

We both wanted to be free

And oh the picture is not so pretty

Sometimes I see how we both wish things would be

Sometimes I see

Sometimes I…

Why I Said I Do

I remember when I swore I’ d walk alone
Then along  came you
And our friendship grew
Into the love I’d never known
Your my best friend

The love I have for you will never end
Your loves been tried and found true
Thats why I said I do.

This loves been tried and found true
Thats why I said I do
All my grey sky has turned blue
Because you show me how much I mean to you
Baby I will love you forever through and through
Our loves been tried and found true
Thats why I said I do to you
Your love for me
My love for you
Baby our loves a love that never dies
Because its not based on any lies
My loves been tried and found true
Thats why I said I do
I really love you
Thats why I said I do

To Be

My mind, my spirit
My blood, my sweat, my tears
Versus My body and all it’s pain
Versus Systemic auto immune disease, Sarcoidosis
Versus neuropathy, weakness, versus unknown, versus so many symptoms
versus giving up…
To Be is
To tell about it is
To face it, is to cry, is to find peace of mind
To talk about it is
To  hear and find strength in my voice, in my spirit, is to endure, is to continue on my painful journey
To talk about it is
To continue to love, is to seek understanding, is to have growing compassion for others and their sufferings, and hardships
To write about it is
To  dare, is to look in the face of a serious stage disease
To write about it is
To grow braver and bolder
To read about it is
To continue to find strength to overcome even
When my hand, my eyes, my feet, my limbs, my spine, my bones, and my organs struggle
To think about it
is to meditate, is to pray, is to count my blessings, is to cherish life and it’s every moment
To be grateful for every new day
To push myself is
To fight off the darkness, to seek and find the light and to then find my way
To pray about it is
To recognize God’s Grace
To know God’s Glory
To talk about it, to write about it, to pray about it is
To tell my story
I scream out loud
I cry
I wonder why I…
I am inside out, i am still, i remain i
i-freebird and in humbled mind and spirit
i fly
