~ I Walk This Path ~

As I walk this path each day
Though the same path
The paving stones face a different way

Some days it leads me to a land full of love
A land where people are happy
Where love and peace is everywhere

Other days it leads me to a land I hate
This lands full of hurt, pain and tears
Here you will see no smiles or love

Each day as I awake I pray that maybe just maybe
Today I will go to a different place,
a place I like, a place where I can love

So as I lay my head down tonight
I close my eyes and imagine this place

This place I love and can stay.

~ A Matter Of Trust ~

As we live out our lives from day to day
We come to realize there’s only one way,
To meet life’s challenges, as we surely must,
It comes down to one thing, it’s a matter of trust,

We rely on our faith in all that we do,
Without it there’s no hope left for me or you,
Just think on how much , on others we really rely,
Without faith in them, we’d never get by.

Think of the driver of our local bus,
He takes us around without any fuss,
` The pilots of planes that fly through the sky,
Without trust in them we never would fly.

The postman each day who delivers the mail,
If there was no one to do that, we’d raise such a wail,
The doctor who treats us when we are ill,
We depend on his knowledge, to prescribe the right pills’

Just think for a moment as the days fly on by,
How much on others we we always rely,
We have faith in our cars each day that we drive,
That they’ll transport us quickly, and we safely arrive.

So take time to ponder , whatever we do,
Trust is the element that see’s us get through,;
But above all things else, as through life we plod,
The greatest of all, is to have trust in Allah.

~ Sacrifice ~

The sacrifice of love we give,
Takes less and yet gives more;
An everlasting hand of love,
The heart an open door.

The willingness to give of self,
To lay down your own life;
To touch another person's heart,
In loving sacrifice.

A chance that God has given you,
To reach another soul;
Forever changed by kindness,
A life your love made whole.

For life is but a circle,
Each life part of the chain;
Each link is joined by sacrifice,
That causes man to change.

To turn and reach a hand of love,
To touch another's life;
Will cause the circle to be whole,
In loving sacrifice.

~ In The Silence ~

Only to the silence will she say
How she longs to feel him again
When the shades go down and the lights go out
And these emotions she can no longer defend

Only to the shadows may she confess
How much it kills her to struggle on
And how her soul aches when she wakes
Alone and reminded that he’s still gone

Only in the darkness will she admit
How her love for him eats her alive
She haunts herself with happy memories
And fantasies of being with him

Only in her solitude will she crumble
And allow herself to fall apart

Only in the silence, to the shadows
When she is all alone
She will cry out, awaiting the moment
to be with him once more
