Life not easy, for most an intricate
To realize one’s goals, each day new
Leaving myriad others worse than
I speak to those, who’s plight oft seen
Covert burden of false facade born of
Mask of mourning, hidden tears must forego.
“I am not worthy, this I know!”
Came cry of one so dear,
“Lost in my mind, midst blizzard of
I say to you, my love,
Stand fast, defy the pain, your worth
Gift of birth from one above.
Surrender no longer to the fool’s
Reach deep within your spirit,
Forgive yourself first battle of
Amass your arms, your qualities beyond
Gird yourself in knowing,
Challenge tormenting feelings that
Bend ear to those who love you,
Their words magic balm will serve,
For who better to help, defeating
Live each day, a renewal hour set
To meditate, no darkness to allow,
Let heart smile within you, self-love
be not defied.
In calm of nature, while thoughts
may rage anew,
Step back from the edge of pain,
Let new life and spirit enter you.
For it is within your power,
To alter what has been, to bathe in
Of the fish that climber the tower.
I love you Deke. We love you, Deke!
You must love you now Deke!!!
