Life Journey ….
What is love if not for appreciation of all life forms,
And to know the one soul who can add so much
Beauty and the deepest of tender caring
To heart and soul, whether in physical life or in the spirit,
We all appreciate that one person who can help us
Be all we can be, to grow ever more spiritual
In body, mind and soul.
To be in touch with nature is part of
My spiritual growth and peace of mind,
For it is in nature where the Mother
Shows us harmony and balance,
To help us live a full life of love and kindness,
It is love and kindness, the core of life,
Which puts us in touch with our Self and all others
We were all born to love and learn as we travel
Along on our life journey,
We are all in this together, for we are all one,
All part of this chance to learn, love and grow,
We may take different paths, each to our own,
Yet the destination is the same,
To reach the end of this life with more wisdom.
Our life may be fraught with anxiety and stress,
Or other undesirable events. sorrow and loss,
Yet if we fear not death and embrace life,
Then we can live each moment of each day,
With the inner knowledge we are accepting
The lessons we need to learn,
To become all we can be, in physical and spiritual life.
Tony’s poem, Fear Not Death and Embrace Life, is the inspiration for this poem of mine.
