Where love may live

image

I am sorry child, I have brought you here
I know this place is scary
It seems it’s filled with so much hate
A burden for you to carry

I’ll hold your hand
To let you know
The world is good and kind
Do not let shadows
Scare your heart
Begin with the love inside

And when the world
Begins to weep
Let your light shine through
For a better world
Where love may live
Will also begin with you

My beautiful boy

  
I see your need to be accepted
I see your fear of being rejected
I see your thoughts that cause you tears
I see your belief you’re not good enough to be here.

But know my boy, you are loved
You are a beautiful gift from above.

I am here to hold your hand
I am here to be your friend
I am here to wipe those tears
I am here to expel those fears
I am here to shine your light
So you can see your reflection’s might

Look inside, your heart is gold
Because you, my boy, are one beautiful soul.

A Girl

FullSizeRender

A girl not nearly seventeen
Sat on the beach and cried
She looked at the world through troubled eyes
Was pregnant with her first child.

At home this girl knew nothing of love
Love, she never received
This child was her first faith in God
To bring the love she grieved

A mother who gave no soft touch
A father she never knew
With child, with faith, and desperate hope
The girl sought to escape truth

Many years have come and gone
Now a woman’s become of that girl
With child in tow and a gypsy heart
This woman traveled the world

After journeys and life’s gifts
This woman sits and ponders
Life has given and taken things
But a sadness still lingers

What this woman does not see
Is the success she has become
The child she cried with at the beach says:
“Through my eyes, you are one.”

Because success is not where you end up
It’s the courage to continue
It’s rising above all obstacles
And giving all the love in you.
