Thank you

Sharing a small poem to say thank you to all my friends that support me – to my family that carry me in their prayers and to have the opportunity to enjoy so many beautiful moments in my life:

Brissago, Tessin

“Oh the comfort – the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person – having neither to weigh thought nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away.”

    Reflection of our childhood years
    Were times a little vague
    Recalling only your carefree spirit
    Your laughter and no fears

    We came to know each other very well
    When my life and yours were in turmoil
    I was beyond the point of caring
    The future then, no one could tell

    I experienced the signs of love
    When you reached out your hand
    I listened and respond
    You guided me from valleys to the hills above

    Your life was full and your cup filled to the brim
    Your love was overflowing
    Never too much, always giving, caring
    Your little feet in place, standing firm

    Life dealt you a devastating blow
    Your life in shreds, your ailing health
    My heart was aching from within
    But your pain you vow not to show

    So few knew of your suffering and pain
    You never once complained
    But amidst it all, you still kept on giving
    Always humble and never vain

    I reflect on you and realise
    That the love you give
    Is beyond the meaning of the word
    It strengthened and secured our golden soul ties

    I feel your pain, I cry your tears
    When things are wrong
    My soul stirs, my Spirit moves
    I experience every moment of your fears

    Ultimate and beyond is the extreme feeling of love
    That holds no grudges,
    Feeds on kindness and never seek its own
    This kind of love is only begot from the Father above

    At times we may doubt or wonder why
    But looking back, without a doubt
    The pieces start to fit
    And we can know for sure, our tears He will dry

    I thank you for your honest and ultimate love
    And your loving, caring ways
    The way in which you care for others
    I turn my tear filled eyes in thankfulness to Father above.

    I do not wait to tell you this up front
    For flowers we bestow from here
    Kindness and love are seeds we sow
    The plant that grows is ultimate love beyond.
