The Journey Within
A long time has passed now; since I first looked, into those clear blue eyes,
I have travelled a long way since; on the long hard road within,
The lessons have been many; the growth, immense.
Lessons for the one within; the Souls maturity.
Yes, her eyes are long gone now,
But their memory in full clarity; simply linger on still,
Like the soft fragrance; of her sweet perfume,
Inscribed on a memory; throughout all time,
Their effect, still shines bright; as I travel along, a path so right,
On that long journey; deep into the light.
I cannot turn back now; I must go on,
Just as the body; must return to the earth,
I too must return; so complete and true,
To that special place; where we all once began,
On a mission of discovery; the search for ourselves,
As we slowly unwrap the gift of life; all in a play, deep within a play,
The synchronicity so perfect; we each play our own unique role,
To perfect the gift; of a beautiful Soul,
Just as the sun and the moon; move hand in hand,
Do we not dance; like puppets on this vast land?
Always guided; by a gentle hand,
Life! I ask you; is it not truly grand?
All around me; I see much beauty,
Where once was so barren; now beauty abounds,
Things previously unnoticed; now shine like jewels in the night,
What were once hurdles; now lessons for the learning,
The smile of a stranger; the hand of a friend,
The rose and the thorn; love and hate, black and the white,
All ultimately one and the same; all for the learning, deep within,
The eyes of a stranger; the eyes of a friend,
All a simple reflection; of all that is within,
When love and peace reside within; love and peace reside all around,
The stages we create; the characters we play,
All for the growth; of the one within,
Life on an Earth; abound with beauty,
Binding us together; on a quest into the unknown,
Simply to purify; a divine Soul,
Granted to us; by a source unknown.
