The Spirit Within Poetry

Heartsong's Poetry Diary



There are many invisable lines
drawn in ones life
That either divide hearts
or keep lives apart.

Not everything in life
is meant for all to live.....
Some shall never touch
the ground that others walk on

Some shall never satify their
thirst to drink from life's
waters until the waters gone.

There are many invisable lines
one knows in their heart
are  there....but still
more lines are to be drawn...
to hold one back from
where their heart
longs to be...

Still, life draws one on.

After Seventy Years of Living

Picture taken on my 70th Birthday, on February 20, 2019

Seventy years is a long time
to journey through life...
seven decades of witnessing
life all arond me unfolding
being a part of everything
and being a part of nothing.

What has seventy years of
travelling through this world
taught me?

Living, experiencing  life, tasting
my own tears,beholding the
power of God, during my own trials
and tribulations... loving, and
enduring the loss of loved ones
to death and to life . . .

Living has taught me to be
thankful that God never once
took his eyes off of me.

Silent Sounds


There are silent sounds
that have the power
to change ones world
to ripple through the
heart like a calm wave
at peace with the water
that moves gently,creating
with its unheard sounds
a pool of peace for the
heart to beat to-sounds,
life's melody.

There are silent sounds
that pocess the power
to turn ones world into
a field of brown,engulfing
a river of tears.

The silent sounds one hears
from beneath a mother's
heart...moves the water
one dreams in-before being
washed out into the world.....

The sounds of living are many
the silent sounds ones life
moves to are few.

Listen, with your inner ears,
to the sounds of your heart's
voice that can only be heard
by God, and you.

Only Thoughts

No words today...
Only thoughts
that move my heart.

Thoughts of loss
thoughts of pain
thoughts of love
thoughts of what was
thoughts of surviving
thoughts of God
thoughts of Heaven's gain
and thoughts of how life
could have been
for an angel I call mine...

Thoughts...only thoughts
I've thought a million times.

 In silence I
wander, aimlessly,
foreward ,my heart
grasping yesterdays

Bitter sweet the
memories ...

To my heart I hold
them near - brushing
from each a fallen

Lord, please, keep me
focused on the light
before me, and take from
my memory-
the remembrance of those
things that steal away
my inner peace.

Lonely Heart

O love inside my heart
Desiring nothing more
than peace and a place
where love can nourish
on love and grow to the
height of the heavens,
and the depths of time.

Where two hearts can grow
as one, feel as one, desire
as one, live as one and
when eternal night falls,
sleep in death as one.

O love have thy no mercy
must I spend eternity
seeking what was not meant
to be?

Find comfort O love that
lives inside my heart...
for you have fed many a lonely
soul in their times of need.

God First

God First

Tho my heart was broken
I thought beyond repair
In my heart I always knew
That God was always there.

That the shivers of pain
cutting into my heart
Angels would repair...
with love and tender care.

That as long as my faith
is stronger than heartache
and strive.....I may stumble
and fall but I won't stay down
as long as I put God first
in my life.

Quite Time

 The quite time awakens
thoughts long thought
forgotten. . .
Awaking memories buried
beneath layers of yesterdays,
pealing away moments of
laughter and tears...revealing
the joys and woes that being
alive brings into ones life.

O quite time, pour out
the memories of yesteryears
created by day to day living
Least I forget mistakes made
and am tempted to make the same
mistakes again.

Sleep not O memory! Awaken!
Mingle with the quite time
Renew with memories of old
thoughts to strengthen my heart
mind, and soul.

   It's New Year's day 2019. My thoughts are many but my words are few. If I could find the words to express emotions locked away....bound would be hearts beyond the heart in me. jt       4:53pm January 1, 2019



Betray Not Another's Love

I am but a lowly traveler
on life's roads of ups
and downs...
I see through my inner eyes
the things behind and before me.

Betray not the love or trust
of any...
For love is beyond the reach
of those who seek love- seeking
only to poccess love.

Trust and love go hand in hand
dare not to think you can control
your own heart-when love comes
a calling.

Love is not weak- love has brought
many with a cold heart to their knees.
