If it was not for your determination

I'd cross my heart without cause

it has always been like I've treasured

more so now, that awareness has

widened my horizons.


Strange how life can change over

night, one minute we think we know all

the answers, the next, we have no clue

till something happens that not only

opens our eyes, but our hearts to what

we are living for.


My grandfather told me when I was

very young watching the sunset

My child, when you think you can touch

the sun you will cause your warmth

will reflect as bright as that fireball

you see right now”.


To this day I've never forgotten his words

he told me., so wise he was, knew someday

I would touch the sun, in which I've done

radiating a different kind of warmth.


The warmth of compassion, understanding

loving to the best of my knowledge, have

grown in wisdom, a teacher in my time

writing what flows within.


(Dedicated to my loving Grandfather)
