The Best is yet to Come

Throughout our journey of life, the book holds many lessons but sometimes we get stuck in a chapter and fear the creation of a brand new page.  It is in this blank canvas that our dreams can be nurtured into reality.  By embracing change and stretching ourselves outside our comfort zones, we hold the key to an exciting new world.  This next poem is all about ‘letting go’ and feeling free enough to turn the page of life.    

Goodbye to my past, I’m letting go of you

Now I focus on the present, this beauty is shining through

I’ve closed the door to your love and finally have moved on

Too many sleepless nights, and worry from dusk til dawn

I didn’t need another, to help me close the book

I know the early chapters, were always worth a look

But the best is yet to come, the rainbow is on its way

It paints a bright picture, of the excited thoughts I hold today

Each step forward, I dance between the puddles

Like an umbrella of magic, embraced with joyful cuddles

Some will join the journey, others will choose to stay

But I will not forget you, in my heart for you I pray

Life can turn around fast, but only if that’s your choice

I say yes to change, by listening to my inner voice

Where Is My Life Going?

I have been doing a lot of de-cluttering lately, and yesterday whilst clearing out my bedroom cupboards, I came across some poetry and songs that I had written many years ago.  I will share these poems/songs with you on this blog.  The poem below was written in 1996, at a time in my life when I was very unhappy in my job.  I remember, I used to take ‘time-out’ during my job tasks and drift off to another world, I would secretly write poems and songs about my life and what could be.  I distinctively remember how unhappy I was at that time, being in an unfulfilled job, but I am delighted to still see my positivity shining through in my poetry.  I guess even back then, I always believed in myself and that the current situation at that time in my life was only temporary and that I could do something to change that….and I did!!  I think by asking myself, at the time, the question “Where is my life going”, helped me to search for the answers from within.  Listen to the sound of your heart, your calling is calling you.  Love Clarabelle

Where is my life going?

Where is my life going? I ask myself,

Am I on a path full of fortune, with everlasting health?

I don’t really think so, as I trek up this hill,

For at this moment now, my fortune is nil.

But no, it is wrong, to think that sheer money,

Can change this life, from cloudy to sunny.

If I keep travelling, on this path forever,

Would it be clever?

Who could tell me, if it were wrong?

As me and my shadow, go walking along.

And when I arrive, at the crossroads ahead,

Should I go left, or maybe right instead?

I have decided, that no one but me,

Can choose my direction, in life to see.

The path may be long, and winding one day,

But on another, my feet shall dance the way.
