~ Destiny ~


Destiny sits upon the morning horizon
Always in site, but never clear
And as I travel along the road I have chosen
Destiny remains forever in place
Sitting upon the morning horizon

But as the years pass
And the road spans the distance
Between yesterday and tomorrow
I know my destiny will arrive

For time alone will close the gap
So yesterday becomes dust filled memories
And the horizon of tomorrow
Will be the road of today

For then,
there will be no yesterday or tomorrow,
only today

And when that day arrives
I will find peace and be complete
For I will be one with my destiny

~ Let It Flow ~

Let It Flow .........

I think about you
all the time.
I know I probably shouldn't,

caused us to meet.
has brought us together.
decided I love you.

So I'm counting on Destiny
to finish what had started.

I don't completely understand
all the circumstances
of our relationship.
I don't know what
goes through your mind

I wish I knew
what you really wanted
deep down
How you see the end.

Do we share
the same perspective?
In your mind,
do we share the future?

And I wonder
if it wasn't
and even a bit
to love
without security.

Deep inside
I feel we belong
in love
because I know
you make me happy.
Probably could forever.

I'd give almost anything
to feel this love
unrestricted and free.
Let the whole world see
I love you.

Let it flow...

~ The World ~

The World ..........

Do not follow a bad law.
Do not live in thoughtlessness.
Do not follow wrong ideas.
Do not be attached to the world.

Arise; do not be thoughtless.
Follow the path of virtue.
The virtuous rest in bliss in this world and in the next.
Follow the path of virtue; do not follow the wrong path.
The virtuous rest in bliss in this world and in the next.

Look upon the world as a bubble;
look on it as a mirage.
Whoever looks thus upon the world
is not seen by the sovereign of death.
Come, look at this world resembling a painted royal chariot.
The foolish are immersed in it,
but the wise are not attached to it.

The one who formerly was thoughtless
and afterwards became conscientious
lights up this world like the moon when freed from a cloud.
The one whose wrong actions are eradicated by good conduct
lights up this world like the moon when freed from a cloud.

This world is blinded; only a few can see here.
Like birds escaped from the net, a few go to heaven.
The swans go on the path of the sun;
miraculously they fly through the sky.
The wise are led out of this world,
when they have conquered.

~ I Wish You Were An Ocean ~

I Wish You Were An Ocean ...........

I wish you could hold me
like the ocean embraces the sand,
soaking every grain with it's loving touch.

I am needy when I am around you.
I admit to that.
Is that really a sin
to be so in love with you.

I wish you were an ocean
and I but a grain of sand.
Then I would feel
the love that I desire.

~ Patience ~

Patience ..........

I am waiting
Though not in stillness as I wait

I am hoping
Though not in despair as I hope

I am dreaming
Though not in darkness as I dream

I am longing
Though not in emptiness as I long

I am trying
Though not in futility as I try

I am learning
Though not in ignorance as I learn

I am becoming
Though not in nothing as I become

I am being
While eternity teaches me patience
