Up Side Down

Updated on October 4, 2013
Down the Stairs
Down the Stairs

Let this man begin to shine with a glow that’s unlike mine. Help him see that he may know how to see that special glow,

That resides within his heart. With this glow he'll never part. All the spirit hidden inside will no longer run and hide.

Help this man to see once more all the beauty kept in store, For him should he choose to rise far above the earthly skies,

Into realms not yet explored. Into realms where truth’s restored. There he finds the peace within helping life on earth to spin,

In its proper order and style. Perhaps this man remain awhile. Finding happiness within his grasp. Avoiding the wicked, wicked asp,

Which haunts him daily makes him spin. Keeps him from the peace within. Grounded this man must become. Grounding is what keeps him from,

The flights below this earthly realm. He then can fully take the helm. His destiny he now controls. Avoiding pitfalls and deep holes.

Keeping his life here on this earth. Keeping hope in his rebirth. And for all this he will find his hope his joy his peace of mind.

May his angels follow him all his day’s. May guides return and guide his ways. May his love be shown both near and far. May his hand become a tool of god’s.

May he continue his work to do. May he heal and learn to follow through. May he stand upright with dignity. May he bear his soul for those who'll be,

Nearest to his love that binds souls together human kind. Should he stumble, should he fall when answering this mortal call,

Raise him up to stand upright. Showing him all truth and light. Then he'll find his mortal ground, No longer to feel upside down,

      Wonderful and creative. I think there are times that we do feel as if our worlds are turning upside down.
