Today I am taking some quite moments and contemplating life and all its complexities of emotions..
Empty spaces, i have loved
time and time again
reaching for the unshone light
in hearts and souls of men.
Op'ning shiny parcels of the words they fear to say
teaching them to speak themselves
All my prayers to Gods above
a love for me to send
each brings closed souls to me
I open them, love ends.
Perhaps it's me I wait to love
my own soul, to embrace
seeking light from dreams denied
to fill my empty space. By Charlie Smith
I am pondering life today and this poem spoke to what I am seeing and feeling around me. I love this poem it so beautiful but heart wrenching. I see so many people who are filled with sadness, the light in their eyes has dimmed or has turned to grey. What happens to certain people as they grow older? Does their brilliant light dissolve as their dreams die?
Can we help those around us to shine again?,
