babies, children, life, and love ~ day 2

the days march on
i dance through
i plod through
i dance through

anger interrupts
i dance through
i dance toward the light

unconditional love
surrounds me
i dance within
i dance through

sadness interferes
i allow it
the tears bring
healing
i dance through
i dance toward the light

love over all
i dance within
i dance through
i dance toward the light







 



"Somewhere, over the rainbow, way up high
There's a land that I heard of once in a lullaby

Somewhere, over the rainbow, skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true

Someday I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where troubles melt like lemon drops
Away above the chimney tops
That's where you'll find me

Somewhere over the rainbow, bluebirds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow
Why then, oh why can't I?

If happy little bluebirds fly
Beyond the rainbow
Why, oh why, can't I?"

babies, children, life and love ~ day 1

this time of year 
i start to think, typically, of that dance 
that autumn dance. somehow, this year, 
that dance is so different. 

somehow
the dance has become intertwined with,
with what?

my new 
everyday life
i suppose.

where sighs,
sighs are mandatory.
frequent sighs.

reminders
to drop shoulders.
reminders
to breathe.
reminders to dance
and sing
and let myself be.
reminders,
to leave all things 
in God's hands.
reminders that my God,
my God, is 
a great God.



Sweet Dreams
Sweet Dreams my darling, the day is done.
The moon is here to say goodnight to the sun.

Gather your blankets and climb into bed.
Close your eyes and lay down your head.

Rest for now with peaceful dreams,
Of twinkling stars and shining moon beams.

Sweet dreams my darling, sweet dreams my love,
Sweet dreams my precious gift from above.
