 Expressions of Heartfelt Wisdoms

“A Gift From Above”

Old friends return, Acquaintances resurrected
Making time to search, Finding room to grow
New friendships emerge undetected

Remembering yesterday from deep within the heart
Anticipating tomorrow's start, Keeping today alive
Reach out, Hold on, Never let the images depart

Some things aren't meant to last, Others you'll never know
The pain etched in memory, The joy of what once was
Life is far too short, To simply let it go

Tear down those walls that surround
Unlock the doors to my heart
And suddenly life will abound

Letting go of one, While reaching for another's soul
No one ever said it would be easy
But when it happened, They said I was sure to know

Love for another can never be planned
Push away the fears, Just be myself
When least expected, I'll hold it in my hand
