True Adoration.

Updated on December 29, 2009



When you have

achieved adoration
before thousands

of screaming fans
as you dance on

the vibes of fate
that brought you to

your pinnacle of fame....
when a ocean of

faces cry your name
and the electric

squeals of the axes
move them in undulating

waves as one
pause for a single

moment and capture
the feel, and the taste

of that multitude of love
breathe it in

deeply on that day
for much later comes

only the silence
of a satin box and

a single face of death
hidden in the soil

of man's mortality
and then what you

knew as a charmed life
that great adoration

that cloaked your world
is forgotten as time

erases your essence

But on a much

greater scale
if you simply get

the chance to hear
"I wuv you mom,

I wuv you too dad!'
from the honeyed petulant

lips of your babies
wide eyes full of

trust, loving only you
hugging a leg tightly

and smiling with
perfect miniature

porcelain gleams....
savour that moment

and cling to its gift
for you are most truly

loved in a bigger way
then the masses could

ever pour upon your soul
and far too soon

comes the silence
wrapped around you

in deaths final grip
clasping you in

the airless space
of a mahogany

and brass container
that your babies,

then grown will hug
and whisper, " I love you mom,

I love you dad.
but your ears

will not function
and your eyes

sewn shut will not see
the glories of what love

bestowed upon you

If we even get the

chance at least once
to cause someone

to say "I love you."
then we have

achieved the adoration
that all were

meant to bask in
and so few hang

on to long enough
to appreciate the

incredible beauty
it adds to life,

as well as the ease
with which it helps

to lessen death
when all that is

sacred in this world
slips away

with a sad sigh.

      Beautiful and so true. There really is nothing in the world that compares to the love you get from your child. And it's a love that keeps on giving, rolling from generation to generation. It's a love that truly matters and can change the world. :)
