As my memories wane and fail,
The vision of your beauty grows,
As I knew the joyous young child,
I can now see a mature loving women,
Imagination fills the greatest gaps of time,
I perceive the happy times, the struggles, family,
Rewarding path of bringing the children to bloom,
Satisfaction at a job well done, life well lived fully,
I envy you my dear old friend…
Art and Words to settle my mind
Hope it can be as hollow as fear,
Hope and fear are both phantoms
Arising from thinking only of the self.
When we don’t see the self as self,
There can nothing for to ever fear,
Create the world to match your dreams.
Strong be your faith in the unity of all life.
Loving the world as you do your children;
Only then you embrace the majesty of being.
Become all you were created to be,
Traveling this path, together as one…
