Light Shines On Me

Updated on August 13, 2015

You Could Say I Sparkle

Isn't it wonderful

I see you sparkling more than me

How do you do that ?

It comes natural

You don't have to do anything

Please explain ?

Our life started with out us knowing

So every day you could say we keep glowing

It is who we are

Not on the outside what everyone sees

That's to easy

It's on the inside that really counts

All our thoughts and emotions wrapped up in a tight little bundle

When we were born

Not so many years ago

I am sure someone said

Look at my bundle of joy

They really meant it

Some how years later people forget to say it

I would love to go on and on

Telling you in every way

Then I thought no matter what words I pick

No matter how much I emphasize every word

I can't believe I almost underlined every word

There are so many pictures and you tube videos

I want to go one step better

Use your imagination to dream

Think as large as the sky

As high as the sun

You get the picture

That prove my point

I thought and thought

Then thought again

No I am not done thinking

So I thought some more

Every word I use

Could there be one better

I have the answer

Why not ?

No I couldn't

Well I will never know

Unless I ask

I will ask Sparklea to tell you herself

She has been lighting a path wherever she goes

I look in amazement and nod

Keep up the good work

I would tell you myself

More often than not

I am tongue tied

Speechless

Just keep doing what your doing

One day I will have the right words

I can show you how I feel

Life is short

We aren't getting any younger

Unless someone finds the fountain of youth

Please let us know

I am proud to say Sparklea has been a good friend

Listening to my words and digging deep into their meaning

A writers dream

To know that one person understood

What only took a minute to read but hours to make

Thank you Sparklea

With these simple words

You have so many friends

God blessed you with a wonderful heart

      Jodah I made a mistake and spelled your name wrong. Sorry about that. My eye-sight isn't as good as it use to be and even after I proof read I missed it. You have found time to comment and always leave good thoughts.They are very much appreciated.

      Sparklea, So many people in life do the right thing day after day. For one reason only because they are happy being who they are. It shows in their words and their actions. They have strong family values and care about others.I was hoping for a smile. I have a difficult time when people are sad. I think is there one way to make them just a little bit happier. Then I hope their own family's love and support will carry on. I may type the words but I couldn't do it without my wife's support and encouragement. I know that without our other half we would be lost. They guide us and help us doing what we love to do. Squeezing in five minutes to write seems impossible at times. In the end we go to sleep and count our blessings. I believe God put us on the earth for a reason. Just maybe some day we will figure out all we have do is get along. Appreciating others no matter how many miles apart with words to make us wonder and think God's love is never ending. If you can see the beauty in life than you can share it with the world. Thank you for reading and caring. Have a beautiful night.

      Hi Dream On; finally getting to the computer prior to bedtime. I am speechless...and tearful, not only for your lovely words about me...SO VERY UNEXPECTED, but SO much appreciated. This lovely tribute hub came just at the right time! I just LOVE LIFE and two in my family died this month a few weeks apart, which truly grieved me, but, at the same time, caused me to embrace the art of living even more and more. I am overwhelmed with the kind comments where people mentioned me also...thank you Billy Buc, a true friend also, and Jodah. I feel so undeserving ...but God's love, grace and mercy always surface through people like you. That statement you wrote, "focus on the good to create good," I have written on a piece of paper and I carry it in my back pocket and read it every day. It affected me in such a positive way! I also have it written on a piece of paper on my bed stand to read before sleep and when I awake in the morning.

      You write, 'I see you sparkling more than me...how do you do that?"

      To answer that question, it is all God. Without God, I would not be able to function. Any good in me comes from the Holy Spirit within. I take NO credit for I have many, many flaws. I weep very easily, because I have compassion on those who suffer...a coworker of my husband has cancer. I met him at a fundraiser, and he was so sweet and my heart melted for him and I held back tears. Our cat is diabetic, and I weep for his constant raspy purr from asthma which he suffers from also. I cry through movies, television ...a grim reaper? No. It all comes from the heart...I just cannot help it. I thank God for the wonderful people I have met on Hub Pages...including YOU of course! My heart is so full just from reading this. I will print it out and show it to my husband in the morning (he gets up 2;30 a.m. for work so he is asleep) God bless, I will now go on to your email. One million thank you's cannot express my gratitude. Sparklea

      Jordan Here at hubPages there are so many writers each have their own flair. I couldn't easily get lost for years just reading story after story. I would get nothing done. It's always a pleasure to see you. Thank you for reading and commenting.

      billybuc Once again you have made your way to one of my hubs. I am very happy you feel that way. You have encouraged so many people with your hubs you are truly a sunbeam yourself. I know many people would rather spend their days and nights talking about what's wrong with the world. Very few put all effort in trying to change it. You have found a perfect way to mix the both together like a perfect meatloaf. Can I have a second helping please. I think if we all find ways to contribute to society making it better we wouldn't have enough time in the day to cause anyone any harm. Your thoughts are so much appreciated and it is before noon. This is way too early for me. I am up to usually four o'clock every night. Missy Smith I wish people could hear and feel that. What a better place we would all have and see. Thank you for sharing your kindness . May today bring you a touch more happiness.

      Everyone has their own little sparkle from the inside. I do believe that. I don't think a lot of people feel they do, but we are all special in our own way. :)
