Come Sit By Me A While: I Believe.

Source

Today we may go through life having overcome so many obstacles and are living our dreams;is it then so very wrong to wake up one morning and feel a little low???

Feel that the sunshine is indeed behind the clouds ?

Feel that our blossom paved paths have once again become a little rough with each blossom blown away by an angry wind ?

Feel so angry at oneself for feeling like this ?

Maybe at times we are not sure why we feel sadness but what we have to understand is that life cannot be sweetness and light at all times ;also we are not robots programmed to run around daily laughing and skipping the whole way.

Actually it would be a little disturbing if we did act like this;two great words which I often use are 'Expect and Accept.'

Expect to feel like this at times and accept that this is how life is and the days will be sunny again very soon.

I have always said that we have to experience bad times in order to fully appreciate the good ones.

Two factors that I always hang onto when I feel a little low is to keep hold of my hope and my faith .

No matter if I am happy or a little sad 'I BELIEVE!!!'

Rictameter:My Heart.

My heart

Sometimes heavy

At times so so tired

I struggle to find new footings

A feeling of great gloom and tiredness

Then the promise of a new day

Lifts that blanket of gloom

Sunshine filling

My heart.

Source

Freeverse: I Believe.

I walked and walked

from noon till night.

Contemplating

each

wondrous sight.

Sunshine

and

shadows.

Birds singing

from their hearts .

So why does my heart feel heavy?

I sat by a brook

gurgling

its

secrets;

I smiled at each word

sprinkling

and

glistening!!

So why does my heart feel heavy?

The afternoon sun

danced with each breeze;

each Buttercup

promised

its face

to the world

each petal

gleaming

each secret

shared!!!

So why does my heart feel heavy??

A sweet promise

so familiar

so soft

leading my heart

to a beauty

never dulled !!

Deep in the heart

of my heart's belief

a soft haven of

Grasshoppers chirping;

the heather's sweet fragrance

so magnetic;

sweet songs

magically composed ;

sweet messages understood;

My path lined with wonders;

recognised and trusted ;

hope and faith

in abundance!!

I know from deep within

I BELIEVE.

My heart no longer feels heavy !!

Acrostic;Follow Your Heart.

Find your niche

Over each bramble

Loving each new wonder

Loving life itself.

Oh how my days are painted yellow

Where will this lead me?

x

You will know days so golden

Only you alone

Under that sky of blue

Red skies at night.

x

Heartfelt sweetness and light

Eternally yours to bless

Always walk in deep hope and faith

Reaching each goal so high

Teach others to follow each day.

Rhyme: I Believe My World Stays Bright.

Yesterday my heart was sad

Yesterday my dreams so bad

Yesterday's gloomy story

Dark days oh so unhappy !!!

x

Today I faced each deep fear

Today my sight became clear.

Today I know I will love

The sun shines from up above.

x

Tomorrow's journey tender

Tomorrow's sweet surrender

Tomorrow that beacon's light

I Believe my world stays bright.

Acrostic:I Believe.

In time of sadness I still believe

x

Because my heart tells me so

Each and everyday my faith stays strong

Loving myself as we all should do

I have walked my journey so strong

Eternally my hope swells and blossoms

Volumes of sunshine right behind each cloud

Evermore 'I Believe.'

Eddy, I have had those days, but admit today is not one of them. I am just so happy today to be able to read other's work and be back online after having had no power for two days that I am just counting my blessings, but can relate to your post, because yesterday morning when I awoke to day two of no power, I kind of felt they way you so nicely described. Great job as always and hope you are having a wonderful day!! Have voted way up and shared all over too!!

Eddy - I am so glad you published this insightful Hub. I have often said that the highs in our lives just wouldn't mean as much if we didn't have the lows to compare them to.

Another fine write

Sadness is unavoidable, as you well know my dear friend.....and it is a part of existence which I believe to be important. We must allow the full range of feelings, for to deny them is to become unhealthy in so many ways.

Great job on this one, but then this was written by Eddy, and I expect great.

peace and blessings to you,

billy
