Healed Heart Gleams

What stirs in heart at depths it seems

The whole of quiet, nature beams

Take a look and longer gaze

At what you pass in hurried days

Find the rest, your soul that thirsts

Remember love, remember firsts

Once wild desire, taken for granted

Trace back and see what seeds you planted

The tree that grows needs time to flare

Slow down, stop running, reaching for air

Hold to that which firmly rooted

Anchors soul, press play, now muted

Let beauty’s music guide your heart

Hope revealed, seen now in part

Gather treasures growing where

Your passion planted life once bare

Remember promise sown with vision

God graced you with a worthy mission

Humble down and let love rise

Cherish treasures, choices wise

Cease in searching empty dreams

Once cold and broken, healed heart gleams.

Saving Joy

Sometimes music takes me

To a sunny beautiful day

Alive and glowing

Lyrical truths to say


Smiling peacefully

Eyelids closed in love

A grateful yes

Question from above


Float above the nothing

Meaningless chatter

Hold fast to serving

Humility on a platter


You will forever be

A dreamer, the few

Who catch hold of life

Saving joy for me
