A little poem for your Thursday

Help on the way---Robert Hunter
Paradise waits
on the crest of a wave
her angels in flame
She has no pain
Like a child, she is pure
She is not to blame
Poised for flight
Wings spread bright
Spring from night
into the sun
Don't stop to run
She can fly like a lie
She cannot be outdone
Tell me the cost
I can pay
Let me go
Tell me love is not lost
Sell everything
Without love, day to day,
insanity is king
I will pay
day by day
Lock, bolt and key
Crippled but free
I was blind
all the time
I was learning to see
Help on the way
I know only this
I've got you today
Don't fly away
'cause I love what I love
and I want it that way
I will stay
one more day
Like I say
Honey, it's you
Making it too
Without love in the dream
It will never come true
Now some of you may have guessed that these are lyrics to a song as well as a great poem. This song was performed by a band that i used to trape around the country with. I loved to shake my bones when they played this, but i never really understood the lesson to be found in the words until recently. In the great change that my life has encountered in the last two years i realized several things about love.. more specificly love for myself. My words for all of you today are REMEMBER to stop and care about everyone including yourself! I hope you put a little love in your dreams.... And they all come true!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

have a great day


  1. "...REMEMBER to stop and care about everyone including yourself."

    you got that right... wise words. hugs!

  2. The poem is lovely, but the words you wrote yourself, about understanding the lesson and loving yourself enough to completely change your life... that is truly awesome!

  3. If we don't care for ourselves no one else can. Excellent reminder on what is important.

    I've been good friends with your mom and dad for several years now and am looking forward to meeting them on the bloggers cruise in February.

    I've been following your ups and downs and I'm happy to say mostly ups for a very long time now.

    Have a terrific day. :)

  4. Yes he does, Sarge...readers who care about him very much:)

    Be good to yourself...

  5. Absolutely! He's got readers --- you're such an inspiration, hoping my son can do what you've done!
    Love the poem/song. Definitely words to ponder.
