The Child Within

portrait-of-claude-renoir-painting-1907

As we grow with the passing of time
Life becomes more serious with less fun,
Life’s pressures lay heavily upon us
And with the passing of time
Less able we become.

We must re-awaken the child within
In our heart the child lives on,
A jewel that sparkles and glistens
We see again through the eyes of a child
We remember, wonders and magic long gone.

Life was meant to be a wonderful journey
But as adults we have many illusory fears,
When we awaken the child within
Our burdens become much lighter
And we become younger than our years.

Awaken the child within
And life becomes an adventure once more,
Look in wonder at birds in flight
Listen to the voice of Mother Nature
Feel the softness of the smallest flower
And you will feel your spirit soar.

In our heart we are forever young
And until we die we always will be,
Although the years have taken their toll
When we awaken the child within
From life’s pressures we will be free.

What is this world?
A whisper in an open meadow
Alive for a moment
Disappearing into air

What are you?
A ray that emanates
From an eternal Light
Born of a fire
That needs no oil or wood

Listen my child
All thats happened
Is but a gentle reminder
That you were made to
Surrender in patient faith

Tilt your face
To the place of prayer
And give yourself up
In both
Humility and trust

Do this.
Unveil the guiding star
On this journey you walk
So when the darkness comes
You’ll see the light
And know the way

The Tree Of Love

El Árbol de la Vida. / The Tree of Life.

The tree of love its roots hath spread
Deep in my heart, and rears its head;
Rich are its fruits: they joy dispense;
Transport the heart, and ravish sense.
In love’s sweet swoon to thee I cleave,
Bless’d source of love . . . ,
