Keepers

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


Like beacons we walk earthly life,

alone in a menagerie of form and expression,

seeking like within the multitudes,

the attraction of kind obvious.


Through the mists of confusion,

we hone in on our breed,

lights alive in darkness,

eyes ever scanning in hope of discovery.


Like magnets we are drawn,

finding comfort in each other’s being,

the subtle silent knowing of recognition,

like pieces snug into whole.


These keepers align our thoughts,

imbue our minds with a peaceful silence,

relating without words, connection

and the rightful place of kindred spirits.


For whatever purpose, whatever outcome,

keepers have a place in our life,

the sharing a heartfelt importance,

a validation of life’s course.


Some connections are fleeting, some a lifetime,

but the light shines regardless,

a learning, a comfort, a friendship, a love,

keepers are a part of us, spirits of remembrance,

a knowledge of past, fulfilled.

      We all are keepers. Our soul is the keeper of our body. Beautiful concept.
