Every Day is Made More Special

Life’s Garden

Grow the stuff of empathy
Cultivate compassion too
Nurture love and helpfulness
Bring concord into view
To propagate a garden
In life that smells so sweet
Full of flowers and natures goodness
To grace each one you meet

  

Heartstrings

Not only does it beat and tick
Expand; contract in time
But plays and pulls on strings that go
Past rhythm and past rhyme

Emotions calling unified
The threads that join each one
Across the planet; souls combined
Invisible and long

That extend metaphysically
Through ether and through air
Connections that conjoin each heart
To stretch from here to there

That tug when distance separates
By elasticity
As a reminder that we will
Love through eternity

Heartstrings

 

In Control

We wake – we take – we choose – we die
We live – we breathe – we might comply
But won’t succumb to other things
That hold our life in ransomed strings
Save have a creed that’s fair and free
A life that’s based on liberty
To make the choices we would make
To take from life what we would take
And out of that we’ll contribute
To all around; to walk in boot
Of those who need a helping hand
To live our life in our command
To be the one that owns our goal
For from that base we’ll have control

Disability

When you have a disability
And a ‘hidden’ one at that
It’s not so much what you can’t do
That leaves you feeling flat
But the attitudes of others who
Just twist and turn the knife
With jibes and nasty comments that
Can ail and add more strife

The lack of understanding and
The fear to comprehend
The void of pure compassion or
Aversion to befriend
The cowering from all contact lest
The blame – indignity
The failure to see past the mask
Of disability

But those who stand out from the crowd
Who smile and take the time
To say hello or shake a hand
Tap out a different rhyme
That uplifts and renews all faith
In pure humanity
For smallest feats make largest steps
And mean the most you see!

Every Day Is Made More Special

Every day is made more special
By the company we keep
The folk along whose path we walk
And those with whom we dare to talk
The friendships that we reap

For lives we touch, ingratiate
Those to whom we tender care
Will offer hope; extend our heart
Risk all for kindness on our part
With breaths of pure fresh air

The Wisdom of Kindness

If you want to grow some wisdom
There’s a seed in you and me
That develops through the seasons
Much like the old oak tree
Sagacious in its branches yet
Starting so very small
A seed that doesn’t shout and rant
But reaches out to all
Not cynical; not assuming
The buds of wiser ways
That blooms pure and simple kindness
For more insightful ways

For kindness is the birthplace that
Manoeuvres out of care
That removes all other blinkers
For truer truth out there
That consciously attunes and sees
The other’s points and views
With comfort and encouragement
For wisdom to infuse
Where power becomes more balanced to
Uplift humanity
In the spotlight of wisdom’s nest
Right in the old oak tree
