Let The Pure Joy Rise

Updated on November 12, 2014

I Know It's There

It might take me awhile

Working through every emotion

I can't be mad any longer

Life moves forward and is always changing

There are so many highs who has time for the lows

They just bring me down

Into a dark place way underground

A state of nothingness


Sadness by the bucket full

I will not let life change who I am

I turn to a different place

In search of understanding

Where we see things happen

We question why ?

Trying to figure out the inevitable

It has been two years since my mother passed

Time has a funny way of going by quickly

As if it sped up

Now with the time I have left

I find new meaning

In everything she did for me in her life

Once again I can not help but bring up my dad

Since they were a match

Like bookends one balancing off the other

They did their best to see their four boys had a good foundation

Understanding more than me

Realizing their time was also limited

They left us with an clearer understanding of pride and satisfaction

That when the day was done

We gave it our best shot

As long as we tried

That was always good enough

So as I look toward my future

Allowing myself to feel both happy and deeply moved

By all my experiences here on earth

I dive right into the magic and wonder

To carry on the love that I was taught

Leaving a little part of me

With everyone before I go

      What a beautiful poem about life and what we can take from it, about parents and what they can teach us and about what we should try to do ourselves.

      This is a 'life-lesson' in itself; you've summed up everything with your beautiful words. I think this is your best yet!

      DDE People constantly influence us in many ways so that we may grow and then it is up to us to take what we have learned and carry it farther. To the next step helping others with our knowledge and new found wealth. Thank you for all your comments and support. I find it very difficult to let go of people who are so dear to me. I often question if I could of spent more time doing the things we both loved. Life is a constant exchange of giving and receiving. All my memories are so valuable and it is important to make new memories by enjoying every day. So nice to see you and I am wishing you the best.

      Life is precious and you got to make the most of what you have of who you are. Experiences allow that for you.
