Fear Not

~

When the body works no more

When the heart ceases to beat

Know,

 I am home.

Dry your eyes

Wipe your tears

Never fear

What is known, not.

Celebrate our time together

But more than this

Rejoice!

I have completed my tasks

Honoured my responsibility 

Dwell not upon the past

But, towards the gift of rejoining.

For now,

Be ever present

In each and every moment.

Savour your breathe

And, when the time is right

Work complete

Body laid aside

Honour its usefulness

You’ll no longer need it

Fear not,

The release

Home is where you were always meant to be

With me.

Through Winter’s Eyes…Beautiful Peggy’s Cove

Winter’s white blanket rises to meet a charged sky.

Form meets formless and delight in each other on icy shores.

Angularity awaits patiently, knowing all will be connected again by dawn’s early light.

Stand tall, proud and glowing from weathering time.

Sigh more deeply…  Nostalgia may be hidden, buried beneath all the layers.

Always, always read the fine print…

And, just breathe in… Everything.
