Heart to Heart

This post was inspired by a piece I read called “I’m scared” written by Elsie over at Elsie LMC blog.  She rekindle in me some feelings I get whenever I think of a loved one leaving me before I could share with them all I have to say.

Family is sometimes all we have and those of us who are still fortunate to have people we love in our lives should never take them for granted.  This is to my family.

So many times I stop and think

We could be no more with just one blink

No more laughter, no more talks

No more browsing on our little walks

So as I prepare this heart to heart

Let’s remove all bitterness from our path 

Agreeing to put petty differences aside

Especially those entangled with our pride

Our love for each other we should never hide

So many times I stop and think

How much time was wasted between you and me?

Silence left to pass the time

Because of foolish pettiness

We’ve now reduced our time

So many times I stop and think

If you were to leave me now

My heart would surely sink

For without you in this world

I would feel so empty and cold

As the tears and grief would fill my soul

So I’ve made my decision and with careful precision

I will take the first step because I don’t want to leave this world with regret

Besides I never want you to forget,

I love now and forever

To my mother, father, sister, brother, sons and niece

Knowing each of you in this life

Has truly brought me so much peace

I know we’ve had our moments

But life is short so no more postponements

Live your life and cherish it

Remembering to show your love

While learning to receive it

So let’s put any differences aside

Removing all bitterness and pride

Loving and praying for each other everyday

Because when that day comes there’s only so much we can say

I love you all

Have a blessed day.

Hello and welcome back to Music Reflection Mondays!

How was your day?  I know some of us are currently trying to forget and just unwind hoping for a better day tomorrow.  That’s cool too!

Tonight, I feel like doing a poem.  Hope you like it.

Can you hear the beat?

Can you feel the rhythm pulsing through your feet?

What a tantalizing treat!

No control, as the music makes you move your feet

Like sugar it can be sweet

 

Can you hear the beat?

Do you see how your arms and hips move from left to right?

No more resisting, the music is too tempting

So what if everyone is looking?

It doesn’t matter, we’re doing our own thing 🙂

 

Music is there for our enjoyment

So if you’re feeling sad and blue

A little music might get you through

I hope by now, you know what you have to do

 

Can you hear the beat?

Listen closely,

As you close your eyes

And settle your fears

Let the music temporarily melts away your cares 

 

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great night and a wonderful week.

 

 

Music Reflection Mondays #6

Welcome back to Music Reflection Mondays! I had a really hectic day so music is definitely going to be my choice tonight to unwind and relax.  Hope your day was not as intense as mine. 🙂

As you all know, music is my go to for relaxation and just improving my overall mood. I wrote this little piece about how music makes me feel. Hope you like it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Music is like a glass of wine at the end of a long day

If you listen closely your body might start to sway

However, not all music is designed to make you feel this way

Some are great at soothing the soul, others make you want to lose control

Creating some memories you don’t ever want re-told

The lyrics, the music, all make you connect

Sometimes to beautiful memories you don’t ever want to forget

So although some music is good for relaxation

There are some that are good to help with frustration

Whatever you’re going through there is a song out there for you

So if you ever feel sad and blue

Get a good song you could relate to

Because someone out there has probably been your shoe

Let the music lift you up

And as Michael Jackson said, “Don’t Stop Til You get enough” 🙂

 

Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful week.
