The Lords Embrace

I'm there


I'm there... sitting beside myself,
Thinking about the world...
How I'm going to miss it,
One day when I'm gone.

I wonder if I'll be able to visit,
Those I leave behind...
I'm going to miss being in the physcial presence
And I often wonder why...

I'm there...secluded away from the world.
Lost in my mind,
Knowing that things become un-done,
Once I leave it all behind.

I stare into the horizon sun...
Taking it all in...
The overwhelming feeling I have,
Knowing that one day will come to an end.

The colors of the world define me as a person,
I know that much is true...
I love the world so much...
I even love you!

I sit there all alone,
Watching the colors dance across the sky...
I can't believe this overwhelming feeling I have...
Too scared to say good-bye.

Tears of love run down my face,
I feel the lords embrace...
He lifts me up,
Gives me his hand,
And we begin to walk away...

Leaving our footprints in the sand...
We don't look back,
I feel very safe,
He smiles at me,
I smile back,
To the man with the beautiful face.

      Thanks J.L.-you live in a beautiful place,...now imagine....one hundredfold, the ability to feel and sense that beauty... all of your senses magnified in the spirit...not limited and encumbered by a human body... our fear of a worse situation makes us comfortable with things as they are. This was a beautiful expression from your heart. Cheers.

      Thanks for reading Michael! Your feedback is very well appreciated. Ha ha I myself embrace that feeling of being "Too scared to say good-bye." There's so much that will be missed.

      I know that feeling of "Too scared to say goodbye." I often live in that feeling. Ok, I embrace that feeling, regardless, this poem touched me and I identify with it. Nicely written.
