A Stronger Heart

100_1054

When our prayers fail to reach the eagle’s wings, falling short

of reaching our highest mountains, we fail

to see our visions.

But a stronger heart has learned surrender

each river washing our eyes

as our spirits begin to see, and soar above

the tallest trees. Knowing deeply

all is not lost.

Sing to Me, My Love

100_1069

Sing to me My Love, sing to me of better times,

of when we were young, and people tore down

our walls, instead of building them.

And you can hide in my strength  again

while I bury my face 

in your hair,

sing My Love while we lift

a silent prayer

for peace

in our world.
