Restoration

I come to sit

            In the Sacred Circle.

In solitude

            I seek, I meditate,

I explore my Soul

            To eradicate

The structures within

            That seek to restrict

The path set before me.

 

In my mind’s eye I wander

       Through the past

Of vast wastelands

       To seek the old bones

That feel smooth to the touch,

       Yet, are solid as stone.

Though bleached white with time,

       They send shadowed reflection,

Like faint ripples that shimmer

       To seem silver in sand.

 

I set to the task

            To gather together

Each piece important

            To the whole.

I lay them bare before me

            Building from the beginning

To complete the circle,

            To restore the old life

To regain the new.

            For in the continuing circle

There is no end.

Angel of Destiny

The moon was big and bright

That first night you came to me.

At first, you gave me such a fright

My first instinct was to flee.

 

You talked in riddles, nothing clear.

I thought you were insane.

Though only words I felt vague fear,

And you did not give your name.

 

I wanted to listen to my inner voice

That told me, “Get out of there”.

But destiny stopped me from that choice

To leave would mean despair.

 

My heart so fast began to beat

As your words sparked sense anew.

Old duties that I dare not cheat

To all others I must be true.

 

Then you gave me something solid

A symbol shining in my dream.

Amongst other visions horrid

This could only reign supreme.

 

So many questions filled my mind

The answers I needed to know.

But you had left me far behind

And I did not hear you go.

 

I was not really hurt or angry

Being farther than when I began.

You were an angel of destiny

And I am sure we’ll meet again.

Always…

For a time, you will be on your own

But there is nothing for you to fear,

You are never completely alone;

You need only call my name

For I am always here.

 

In the dark of night,

When your demons try to roam,

And you need to see a light;

You need only call my name

For I am always there.

 

When the road before you stretches far,

To make your dreams seem out of reach;

It does not matter where you are,

You need only call my name

For I am always everywhere.
