Never lose hope, my heart, miracles dwell in the invisible.
bogs of brooding come like a swarming fad
whenever I am sad, I think of reasons to be glad
I think of the Sun that rises each day
the breezy clouds that sail away
the stars that punctuate the darkness
the multitude of colors to contrast the starkness
the love that fell upon me once
that made me laugh and my heart did bounce
the gentle touch of your hand so near
the sparkle in your eyes that gave me cheer
the hope that there would be better days
the miracle of breath in all we say
for within the softness of the soul
there is the love for all to know
the child who smiles so bright
when watching the ant crawl with delight
The other day, my granddaughter, Nadia, 4, was peering intently at the floor…and then looked up at me smiling and exclaimed: “Nanny! Nanny! The ant has life!” The previous day we had found a bug crawling on the floor and having learned from my Insect Collecting days, told her, “We will have to gather the bug up and take it outside.” She replied, “Why, Nanny?” To which I replied, “Because the little bug has life!” Nadia learned the lesson well!
“..the miracle of breath in all we say.
for within the softness of the soul.
there is the love for all to know…”
yep, it says it all. Not much to add..There is love for all to know..beautiful
Beautiful post, Jane. Hope you are doing great 🙂
Thank you, Celestine! Thank you for your many visits to my blog and your always kind and thoughtful words! I am trying to be hopeful and find my connection to the God within. I know we all live in the heart of God, as Kahlil Gibran said so beautifully, “Say not God lives in me, but rather, we live in the heart of God.” Sometimes I forget that beautiful truth! I think I should paint it on my wall! Your friendship to me is a welcome sign of the universal sisterhood we all share in! Thank you!
