YOU Are Gold

Christmas Tree

Believing is Seeing

The tide is turning, EVERYTHING is changing for the better, 2014 welcomes you with open arms, get ready to rock ‘n roll and take the challenge on…..success is on the horizon, I feel it for you, BELIEVING is seeing, make sure you do that.  This next poem is inspired by just that and it is for YOU.  Love Clarabelle.

YOU Are Gold

In every challenge,
there’s potential in you.
In every thought,
in all you do.

Believe the hype,
believe it’s true.
You are special,
So loved through and through.

A broken heart,
drowning in the sea.
Mind swirling around,
Set yourself free.

As the high winds howl,
like a wolf in the night.
Look for the stars,
They are your guiding light.

When you are the bottom,
the only way is up.
When shattered dreams,
feel heavy in your cup.

But one year on,
You’ll look back on this day.
Success was in the failure,
because you found your way.

The path of life,
never goes straight.
One day lost in the maze,
One day finding the gate.

The way out is clear,
you can’t see it with your eyes.
It’s from deep within your heart,
Its whispers are wise.

The people on your road,
are here for a reason.
Some for a lifetime,
some just for a season.

But remember this,
YOU are gold.
A precious stone,
No one can mold.

So when darkness falls,
and you have no light.
Remember your heart,
will always shine bright.

Like an angel in the wind,
Floating by your side.
She appears in many people,
Being your silent guide.

Someone is thinking of you right now…Who?

Pass on the Learnings

We all have tough days, we all have hard times, we all suffer deep sadness and heartache.  I believe one day, very soon, you will look back at this moment and realise that the poem below holds many truths.  You will silently smile, pass on the learnings and hold your dreams in your arms.  Maybe, just maybe, you needed to hear this today, remember you are loved, very very much and someone is thinking of you right now, because they love you with the most deepest unconditional love.  Treasure that thought, hold it in your heart and let it bring true light into the darkness.  Your spirit is sparkling now, I see it, I feel it and I know you can too.  Much much love to you today as always, Clarabelle.

When the Rain Falls

You may feel pain today, it may be tough;

You may be worried today, weather is rough.

You may feel like crying, because you’re lonely inside;

You may feeling like dying, because your heart has lost pride.

But please believe me, for this one is true;

There is an abundance of love, surrounding you.

It is helping you release, all of that stress;

Building you from within, when life seems a mess.

Angels are dancing and holding you tight;

The sun is behind the clouds, shining on you bright,

When the rain falls, it is to refresh your soul;

It washes away the darkness, making you whole.

Right now you are loved, someone is thinking of you;

They hold you in their dreams and pray your wishes will come true.

To suffer in this moment, will not make you well;

Believe this message, like a magical spell.

May it awaken your spirits, turn your frown into a smile;

I am with you my friend, for forever and a while.

Having had tragic circumstances to deal with in my life with the sudden loss of my twin brother, husband and father all within a close space of time, I felt I had to write down some of my thoughts in the form of a poem to try and give me strength to get through such sad times, I feel that poetry helped me express my emotions and hopefully will encourage others to read them and take strength from them to carry on each day and look at every day as a blessing, I now try and look at life in a more positive way and have realised that through time we all get stronger.

Happiness

In our lives the sun may shine, some days I wonder why not in mine. with a spring in your step, you go about your day, but what about those who are not made that way. 

Sharing your laugh and sharing your smile, means a lot to those who haven’t felt that in a while, they say try to be bubbly, try to be fun, but that’s really hard when you live a life where there is no sun. 

Look in the mirror say what you see, tell yourself is that really me,the frown on my face those unlit eyes, what happened to that smile that could light up the skies.

 Pick yourself up get back on track, watch out my girl or you’ll take a step back.  So here I am smiling today and I have to tell myself ‘there is no other way’.

Prayer for the Loss of a Loved One

When someone close to us dies, often prayer can help us to see through each day until we become strong again and are ready to face the world.  I wrote this prayer after hearing about the loss of a friend’s loved one, I hope its sentiment brings strength to anyone who is going through this deep sadness at this time in their life.  Love to you Clarabelle.

Prayer for the Loss of a Loved One

Dear God,

I pray that my loved one, is now held gently in your loving arms.

May their soul now be free and abundant with love and light.

Let their happy loving spirit, shine and guide us here on earth.

I pray that my close family and friends, remain strong for each other.

May we continue to be blessed with your loving presence, every moment of every day.

Amen

 

You’re Never Alone

Life can be full of shocks and surprises, usually when you least expect it.  I heard some sad news recently, the unexpected passing away of an adult friend from my childhood. Instantly I thought of the loved ones that are left behind and trying to cope with their loss and sadness.  It made me think of how I was able to cope when my Dad passed away many years ago.  I wrote this poem in the hope that it will bring some comfort and solace to the grieving family and friends, you are all in my prayers.  Much love to you Clarabelle

You're Never Alone
You’re Never Alone

You’re Never Alone

Today I feel your sadness, it’s present in my heart;

Your loss is very tragic, many tears from you depart.

A sinking soul, with a deeper beat;

Emotions are heavy, no people you want to meet.

Is this real?  Is this me?

Questions stir your mind, make you feel crazy.

But let me tell you a secret, one I want to share;

When loved ones leave us, important people do care.

They offer a helping hand, to ease your current pain;

Their love surrounds you, to fill your heart again.

The human spirit comes alive, and reaches out to you;

It shines a light on your darkest days, to help you see it through.

You’re never alone, at this difficult time;

Angels dance around you, until you feel just fine.

So when you close your eyes tonight, and rest your head to sleep;

A warm blanket of love and light, penetrates your soul so deep.
