Picking Up All The Pieces

Updated on May 21, 2013

I Take My Time

Everyone has left and I couldn't let it go

There are so many pieces that need a place

How could anyone just walk away I wonder?

As I sit on the floor that so many have walked on

I realize to be humble is so nice

That still doesn't explain why I am left alone to do a job of many

Taking a deep breath I realize how lucky I am

To be given this opportunity to see what others miss

As each piece of the biggest puzzle I have ever seen slowly touches my heart

Understanding it might be years and this puzzle could be still far from finished

As each piece connects my mind vibrates with a love that is so calming

Now my curiosity is peeked

To see lifes generosity and it's meaning

The world is filled with so many gifts

I am no longer confused or baffled

I am enlightened and filled with a warmth I can"t explain

Today my day is spent putting together a puzzle

A challange I can't resist

Tomorrow my day is spent solving all the worlds problems

The power to help and leaving Gods plan

In my soft gentle hands

      travmaj I really bellieve we all try to solve the worlds problems in our own way.God will guide us not just for the moment but for each and every day.Seeing hope is enough for me to believe this world is the greatest world anyone could ever conceive.Thanx so much for reading and sharing my thoughts and my dreams.

      shara63 If we tackle a piece at a time we can see progress no matter how small.In time we develop skills that help us move faster and accomplish more.Patiently waiting and learning.Thanx so much for sharing your love and insight.

      Kudos ! Dream On, your poem is really beautiful & it reads the philosophy of life...Its very true dear, life is a compendium of puzzles that we have to solve one after other throughout our lives by putting each & every piece perfectly in their places as per God's plan ....though the work is very exausting & needs all our devotion, emotions & feelings .. its also very true.. that the way we play this puzzle game places us accordingly in the exact place we deserve the hearts of people and near God !!

      GypsyRose Lee One things that keeps me going is finding friends who are going through the same stuff.How we handle it is up to us.Even if there is no solution in place I keep trying to find a way.

      Life is indeed a puzzle and unfortunately there are days that we just can't seem to get the pieces put right and days when everything works out just fine.

      DDE So many different ways to solve a problem.Some ways don't work.Then there are ways that work for awhile.Now and then when you didn't think it was possible you find a way that works so well you amaze yourself.That is a pleasure that is worth all it's trouble all through life.Seeing is believing.billybuc Every time one problem gets solved there is another problem in it's place.Like a revolving door that never stops.That way I can't get into trouble.No time to waste.Life is so awesome.The best times in my life have been sharing with others a happiness over many years I still can't explain.kidscrafts The easiest way to understand life is to accept it and figure it out later.Thanx to all you wonderful writers that keep me on my toes by helping me with your comments and hints as I try to write giving insight and understanding a different light.

      DREAM ON......Picking up the pieces can be very exhausting..especially when there are more squares , than rounds and an occassional triangle...with nowhere to go...the pieces don't always for solving ALL the worlds problems.. there aren't enough hours in a day...My philosophy for life is do the best you can for yourself...cause if you don't you won't be in any shape to help anyone else.....seize the day....

      Sometimes the pieces don't fit you just have to make it a perfect fit
