Open Window

I have been MIA for the past couple of months with just a word here or there but nothing much concrete or questioning or wondering.  I have been going through the motions but not really seeing anything around me.  Caught up in the moment I didn't think things through clearly.  This happens to me sometimes.  But I have become an old pro of picking myself back up again.  Just a little uncertain proof that while I may have thought I got off the roller coaster, somehow I am still on the ride.  

In my defense, I am still learning my lessons.  Apparently I have a lot of lessons to learn.  I am working on the grandeur possibility that each time becomes easier and the lessons are more profound.  I'm trusting the process.  Actually embracing it and living in it and becoming one with it. Challenging but humbling.  
It has all been very liberating. 
I am happy to report that I have come out some other side (again).  And while I still have a long road ahead of me... I have my walking shoes on!

There has to be a window
So you can see past the waters edge
A wondrous rainbow of color awaits you,
If you just believe in what’s been said
If you listen to your heart
The words can speak in volumes
But you can’t fear the past
That’s been leaving you unraveled
The unknown is where
The answers are revealed
If you can keep the faith
In the truths that are concealed
Open up the lid of your life unlived
And all your truest passions
Will come rushing to be fulfilled
Get back up, brush yourself off
and find the faith 
You’re supposed to lead by example
not give in to an endless chase
Even though in times of trouble
it’s hard to understand
Let your life catch up to you
and gently hold your hand
Know you were made with love
in the eyes of happiness and glory
And know that you were meant to be
A happily Ever After kind of story

There are moments that are precious
And daytimes that are still

A night in shining armor
A game of strength and will

Let your sword of enlightenment
Enter me with faith
Embrace my body, mind & soul
With elegance and grace

Impress upon my darkest dreams
The laughter of a child
Innocence will heal all wounds
And dress thee with a smile

If ever I forget these words
Cast your light on me
So I may witness the beauty
In everything I see

May I never turn a blind eye
On that which I don’t know
Yesterday’s mistakes shall be
My victories of tomorrow
