Someone Knows Who I Am


Someone knows who I am!

And would you have guessed

She’s a poet.

She described me

with hyperbole

and used metaphors

to describe my soul as I show it.

She counted all the tears I’ve shed;

listed my fears with alliteration.

One can only help but feel

some sort of fascination.

 

Someone knows who I am;

Someone knows I am,

who I am;

Me, myself and I

now do see

the me

or I

I want to be.

 

 

 

Déjà vu?


Déjà vu?

Perhaps a past life has collided

with my present one,

When I heard someone ask,

“Have you been here before?”

I respond, “Do I know you?”

It answered, “Yes, but you only lived in the present.”

My present life became angry, frustrated.

The questions about life were so many.

It could not remember the Now.

 

Déjà vu?

“Who are you?”

“I AM!”

 

Déjà vu?

“Will you be there too?”

“Only if you live with purpose.”

“Is that all that is required? I get it.”

 

Déjà vu?

“I think I get it. Do you?”

Journey


Paths

Melba Christie

 

 

We all start our journey through life,

with the pitter-patter of our feet.

a milestone most of us meet,

by about the age of one,

all is discovery and so much fun.

 

But life will take you down many paths

some will be rough and some smooth

some you will hate

some you will love

some created just for you with blessings from above

 

Each journey a stop but not a destiny

each step purposeful and meaningful

so many lessons to be learned

even when you decide to make a sharp turn.

The journey of life

no one knows the measure

but try to make each moment

one to be treasured.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Existence


Blue Ecstacy

Existence

Where we are

by far

defines our existence.

But where are we really?

Are we here, in the now, in the present?

Or are we not in existence?

Are we in our own imagination?

A figment?

I like to think I am

inside this painting;

going around in circles

without a worry,

the universe embracing me

until I become a wave.

Words


Life happens once

a cry, a sigh, a chuckle

happens within those

precious hours we call life

words flow and make their imprint

Utter the ones that bring joy,

kindness, love and peace

Make your words matter

because life happens just once.

Words

We must learn to live from within


We must learn to live from within

With faith we are never alone

It gives us the inner serenity

especially when we grow old

 

Be aware of God’s presence within

Like a lighthouse guides the ships at sea

Let your inner light and Wisdom

Guide you through the rough currents that be

 

Inside of us is the Architect

of all that is our external world

all that is what is and truth

 

The plan is clear and perfectly designed

Listen inwardly

For every point and measure is defined

No one can alter it

It is the creation of yourself

A work of art

God made us with a purpose in mind

You were created on purpose

for a specific time

 

Yes, we must learn to live from within

Take time to love

Take time to pray

Take time to nourish your soul

Become the masterpiece

You are meant to be

 

Trees in the sky

Let life find you


Let Life find you

 

Let life find you.

To work its miracles

As you learn to grow

A kind and fine heart

So that others feel joy in living.

 

Let life find you

Living the life

A life that is squeezable

Like a ripe orange

Fresh and juicy

providing pure energy.

 

Let life find you

looking at yourself

In the mirror

see the magnificence

of His image in you.

 

Let life find you

Ready to stand up and deliver

Willing if need be

To sacrifice for a cause

live with purpose

 

Let life find you

Dancing, laughing, and singing

In the rain

Drenched in happiness

and fulfillment

 

 

Let life find you

Breathing heavily;

Feeling the warmth of the sun

Caressing your skin.

Feel life happening to you.

Make every minute count

In multiples of ten and then some.

Look at the views

how plentiful

and beautifully designed by

the creator of all.

 

And inhale deeply every chance

you get.

Watch your chest rise with

each breath.

Notice its perfection.

Listen carefully

to your heart beating away

marking time faithfully.

Let life find you living

as if it were you last.

Life is too short my friend;

Life is just too short.

Love of Life


Inside me is a profound love
for life itself
Each breath I take reminds me
life is too short
Too brief compared to eternity

And what is eternity?
Who truly knows its measure?
I know my love is forever and
Shall be eternal
I count the stars every night
to make it so

The leaves of grass,
Waves,
Clouds,
They will outlive me
And when I am laid to rest
They will know somehow
I loved their presence
In my life
image

Dèjá vu, perhaps?


 

 

Déjà vu, perhaps?

A past life collided with the present one
It asked, “Have I been here before?”
Do I know you?
The present life responded,
“Yes, I think so.
We only lived the moment.”
Déjà vu, perhaps?
No. I don’t know.
I can’t remember.
I am well now though
I live with purpose
Or at least I think I do.
Do you?
