A light poem just for a smile… Mcdade Trail

The trail lightly traveled weeds growing in the middle of the ruts dropping quickly to the riverbed below. Enchanted trees, of majestic height, from an ancient time reaching out their arms seeming to swallow the, golden light. Flowers small and fragile, beautiful and sweet, with the grass and moss the heads of rocks surround.

Emerald, forest, dark and light abound the shades of green like laurel everywhere were found. As the purples and the yellows, reds and blues all the colors of the spectrum Mother Nature used. Around and up the hill amazement with the field ahead, gold and green and tall it’s stalks like a fortress protecting a treasure deep within.

Gentle winds singing with the birds in the trees, the frogs and katydids and small critters chiming in providing harmony. The rivers commanding presence the background as the symphonic song of nature plays its song of togetherness a classical we all know. The song that calms the savage beast and refreshes the heart of all the song you hear with reverence and listening to your heart.

My heart it feels much better now that I walked my favorite trail, if only a memory a vision sweeps my mind of a much happier place and time. I owe a debt of thanks for the beauty and the treasure both then and now. Thank you Mather Nature for your treasure chest, the world that surrounds us is the very best.

Thanks for the smile, Thank you for allowing me to share some thoughts. As a form of expression I am going out of my box and trying something new hope you enjoy and please comment if you are so moved… or want to help me out with a pointer or a smile that is cool too. Please share a smile and some love making our world a better place for all that share it with us. A spacial thanks today to Mother Nature!

I am sorry son

When you were a little one

My beautiful boy my little son


There was a twinkle in my eye, a gift from God up in the sky


I watched you grow and helped you along

Forgetting to sing you a heavenly song


I loved you with all my heart and tried to give you a great start

We went to the church’s that I love most we fished with God up above

A gift of love shared with our earth teaching what life is really worth

I failed you in a major way I neglected to teach you to pray


As the tears fill my eye’s and the guilt forces me to repent

I ask a gift from heaven sent

I love you son with all my heart I ask my lord for his gift of love

To hold you on those cold dark nights I ask to give a gift of light from my heart to yours

I pray for you and love you son I beg for the mercy be taken on your soul

I ask him to look over you and give to you the strength of love and the power of prayer

The failure of mine I ask forgiveness and take my pain


I know you must pay for what you did

I must pay for what I did not

I am grateful our Lord above welcomes us both with love

His mercy is great as is his grace

May his love light up your dark place


Thank you for allowing me to share my thoughts with you. Please be the change positive and share a smile share your love and make a difference helping make our world a better place for all who share it.

I am sorry and I love you son I pray for you!

Courage with Love

I met a lady who touched my heart

I started to fall in love and walked away


Afraid of loving  

Many times in the past hurt so deep


In the darkness

I saw the light loving her was very right


She was loving

Gentle and kind with a beautiful mind


I knew when we met

She was a gift of the most cherished kind, a gift of the great divine


I left my dreams of wanderlust behind

I returned and things were fine, then my children entered my mind


We had been through so much

Through it all with a gentle loving touch


I lost you then

Through the ignorance and weakness of men my darkness


I suffered and sacrificed

I knew no other

I felt shame for not appreciating the gift from Heaven

I begged forgiveness and mercy from my lord and put my darkness on the sword


I prayed and cried I wept alone

On my Lords Birthday in the snow on top of the mountain at ten below

On my knees I gave a white rose from us one from me and one from you


Asked for a Christmas wish

The first and only in my life, I felt guilt at asking yet I knew

The wish on my Lords day would make him happy too.

Humility and grace the love of our makers light belief in the magic of love

A true gift from above the lady that I love


Before that gift I didn’t believe

I knew our Lord was up above I didn’t think I was worthy

I was such a wretched thing full of lust and greed

The Lady melted most of that in me she looked at me loving eyes and

Saw the real and beautiful me


For months I waited alone in my solitude

I was changing and learning about the virtues and love

I wept many sincere tears for all the harm I had done

 to the many souls I have touched not thinking about the damage caused

The Dark one I had become

I find myself reflecting now as I wait agin

I slipped as did another

What could I have done so wrong to feel the breath of Hate


I have embraced the light

You and I had talked and felt its loving magic

We both have the strength we both know our special souls


I know you are not the one you’re acting like

I understand the darkness as once again me it did bite

I wait and ask for mercy from the great Divine for both our souls are crying now

I ask for strength and love and our Lord above to heal your darkened heart


I wait with sincerity and love in my heart

Courage and Virtues my Lord as my guide

I ask for forgiveness for the dark things that I have done

I ask for forgiveness for what you felt you had to do

I know the gift of love true is meant for me and you


I wait with dignity making minor moves

Looking for a better way to support the dream and see the many sights

The sights we always wanted to see and the dream of heavenly flights


I pray the time it passes quickly

I hope you will believe

In the magic of love and our Gift from up above

I share my thoughts and feeling with courage not despair. I have faith, hope and belief in love as well as an undying faith and love in my Lord and God, through the Holy Spirit within I have no doubt that the light of our creators love shines in all of us. Let the light shine forgive take the hard road and fix things make things right and cherish all the gifts you get from heaven.  I know that Christmas gift may not last forever yet this one was meant to. We all get scared when we step out of the box and into the unknown. It is a gift when you have a gift to do it with, two hearts or souls in unison with our Lord and his blessings are quite a beautiful force themselves. Forgive those you love and forgive yourself and begin living the love you were meant to have.

Thank you for allowing me to share perhaps a smile and some love. It takes great strength and courage to wait yet the reward in the end is worth it even if it doesn’t go your way. Two are always better than one. Yet one will survive, the light of love shows the way. Be the change positive don’t run away from your problems fix them with love and kindness.
