Something to Believe In

Long ago, In Destruction

She went away


Time etched on as if keeping some score

Finally she came back, better than before

Not refreshed or renewed


Her strength increased

Her fear dissipated until deceased


Faith, hope, and Love

Her heart and soul now filled of

With this something to believe in

Absent her worries of this life – lose or win

She returned

All broken down bridges burned

From sorrows, hurts, and disappointments

Lessons learned


Yes, long ago she went away

Something to believe in

Brought her to return, unabashed

In original name today

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

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

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

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
