Senses’ Destiny (poem)

Updated on May 10, 2013

He turns his thoughts again to roam the sky

Beyond the edge of all that he can be

To wander past his senses’ destiny

And bid his weary world profound goodbye


He settles in the flowers of his soul

Where traces of a Joyful heart now fly

And whispers lost in dreams wait one more try

A purpose for his reason to be whole


He feels no need for darkness or the light

When countless wonders seem to guide his stroll

Toward existence unknown waiting for goal

And no time to hinder his way or his flight


Then he hears a voice from some memory

A beckoning need his senses excite

A promised forever to which held tight

Which calls out to him please come back to me

      Brilliant Martin as always especially .He settles in the flowers of his soul

      Where traces of a Joyful heart now fly

      And whispers lost in dreams wait one more try

      A purpose for his reason to be whole

      Have a wonderful weekend.

      This has it all Martin, being tired of fighting the good fight but being called back by someone we love...will there be light on the other side? Will God be waiting for us, but wait, what about our husbands or wives or children. This is not only beautiful but verrrry thought provoking.

      Voted up, beautiful, and awesome! Splendid dear sir.

      Beautiful poem. Peace and joy unbound are ahead, but somehow there's always something that keeps pulling us back, that makes us feel needed here.
