Dance with Me

Dance with me to the ocean’s refrain,
As the sun sets after the rain.
Bodies close in evening’s embrace~
Heart to heart and face to face,
Before the music fades again…..

Let not this moment be in vain;
Whisper sweet words to ease heart’s pain.
Passions poured forth swirl round this place~
Dance with me…..

‘Neath twinkling stars, breath to regain;
As dawn’s dance causes night to strain.
Let time stand still, or slow its pace;
Sway, as we transcend time and space~
Dance with me…..

Genie in the Bottle

disney-2013-166

ೋღ ♥ ೋღ

Genie in the bottle,
You are finally free.
Free from the pain of this life;
Free from your misery.

Genie in the bottle,
You chose to fly away.
Leaving all to sit and wonder
Why, with us, you could not stay.

Genie in the bottle,
Your freedom had a cost.
Paid by the ones left behind
To mourn their heart’s great loss.

Genie in the bottle,
Three wishes wished so true…
Each that you’ll rest in peace now ~
In God’s arms as He holds you.

“I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. It’s not.
The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel all alone.”
– Robin Williams

 ~*~

*A small offering as my heart grieves this loss.  As one who has suffered from the pain that suicide brings for generations to come, I ask that we continue to hold this family in prayer along with other countless families broken because of the pain left in suicide’s wake.  I pray that this world begins to find the hope that lies in the Lord.  Nothing is too big for Him–No one ever has to feel that alone.  Thank you for reading.  Rest in peace, Robin.

**You may not know, but in 1992, Robin Williams played the voice of the genie in Aladdin.  One of our favorites–He was absolutely perfect for the part.

Behold the beauty of God’s fragrant rose ~
See subtle winds brushing petals there.
Gently, in Love’s garden she grows,
Quiet as the whispered prayer.
Carefully, each hue chose,
And the perfumed air ~
In these, He shows
Love’s great care.
Sweet rose,
fair.

Sky’s Clouds

IMG_4493

ೋღ ♥ ೋღ

As sky’s clouds float gently along,
The whispering breeze sings her song.
The scent of flowers wafting past
Brings back sweet moments clung to fast.
Bird’s call from their assembled throng.

Memories of love deep and strong
Drift as sky’s clouds, all summer long.
Held tight till the wren sings her last~
As sky’s clouds float.

Tears upon the rose don’t belong;
The birds, they sigh knowing its wrong.
A sun-kissed horizon’s shadow is cast
Trying to outrun fall’s cool blast.
I’ll bring your memory along~
As sky’s clouds float.

‘Neath Sun’s Rays

tumblr_mlbfrrgnx01s2warvo1_500

ೋღ ♥ ೋღ

I walked alone for many days
Choosing the world and her ways
Until one morn, ‘neath rays of gold,
Your whisper warmed this heart grown cold.

No longer hiding from Your love,
I heard beatitudes from above.
In gentle tones, You removed my doubt
With all that I can’t live without…

Your Word so true

Your Presence near

Your Spirit speaking

Your Love so dear

You warm my days and soothe my nights;
In every moment, I find delight.
So hem me in, behind and before~
Let me walk without You, nevermore.

Once imprisoned, I sing freedom’s song,
As I rise up on wings of dawn.
Saved by Your unending grace
The day ‘neath rays, I saw Your face.
