The path, when viewed.
Littered with all kinds of debris.
Past failures, wrong turns.
The might haves.
The could have beens.
But through the darkness and uncertainty.
The clouds of one more grey and dreary day.
Beyond the routines, remainders and reminders.
The light still shines.
Like a moth to a candle.
Dwell on it, in the now.
One step: bravely and soundly forward.
Resolute, not tentative.
That one foot forward will lead to the next.
Savor, the feeling of letting go.
And of believing, once again.
To leave tomorrow, to tomorrow.
The future, still to come.
Seize this day!
Savor and squeeze ever bit of goodness,
From these minutes.
All we really get.
And all, we really need.
The light beckons and warms.
Shines brightly and breaks through.
We glimpse again, our “lost” horizon.
To grasp only the “small” picture, for now.
The puzzle pieces revealing,
such unexpected beauty.
Finally, as they fall into place.
Some names, places, faces.
Left behind and to the past.
They have served their purpose.
Now, with other roads to travel.
None to be regretted.
To know and to accept.
They have come and gone, for a purpose.
Leaving us, wiser and stronger.
If nothing else.
PS: I’m finally back online, still learning all the do’s and don’ts of Windows 8 and my new computer.
I hope to be around to visit all my fav blogs by this weekend. A LOT of catch-up to do!!!
In the meantime, hope you enjoy this poem that was inspired by a fantastic book I read last week while I was without a computer or internet access: Living With Gusto. It is SO worthwhile. One of the best, inspirational books I’ve read in a very long time.
Happy Week to All! 🙂
