The awareness of everything (poem)

Seeing all and being you

The awareness of everything

The awareness of who you are within,
That person you live with every day.
That with you, today’s adventures begin,
That with you, the path of life shows the way.

The awareness of those all around you,
Of the strangers and the friends you will meet.
Of the joy and sadness others go through,
As you pass them by, walking down life’s street.

The awareness of the world where you live,
That sustains you from birth until death calls.
That as well as taking, you learn to give,
That you should help the world up, when it falls.

The awareness of everything there,
Inside, outside, and the world all around.
That it’s up to you to become aware,
To understand and let kindness be found.

The awareness that the future is you,
That in every action, changes start.
Let your awareness guide your own life’s view,
Then towards a better world, play your part.

A touch of winter sunshine (poem)

Enjoying the coldest season

A touch of winter sunshine

A touch of winter sunshine,
On a cold and chilly day.
A moment of feeling fine,
Before the sun fades away.

A chance to see a clear sky,
Frost sparkling in the light.
Winter’s sun just passing by,
Before dragging back the night.

A moment of blue splendour,
So crisp, so bright, and so clear.
Winter’s world there to adore,
Before the dark night draws near.

A time of winter’s pleasure,
A freshness at winter’s noon.
A moment we can treasure.
Before the sun sets too soon.

A chance to refresh our lives,
Enjoy winter at its best.
Watch how the winter world thrives,
Before going home to rest.

The promise of a New Year (poem)

A new year has arrived

The promise of a New Year

The promise of a New Year,
The promise of hope is near,
As the path into your future begins anew,
The promise of a fresh start,
The promise of a new part,
Where your role in life seeks out a different view.

A chance to let go the old,
A chance to clear out the cold,
To turn and seek a new life towards the light.
A chance to let sadness end,
A chance to become a friend,
To reach out to strangers who come into your sight.

Your life can turn a new page,
Step out of histories cage,
Open the door and see the dawn of a new day.
Place your feet on life’s new track,
Shake off the past from your back,
And let the promise of a new year guide your way.
