A lovely poem from “A Walk Through Nature” by Marta Moran Bishop

Marta a walk through nature

FINDING THE LIGHT

Across the years my mind flies
Through muddy passages
My heart must find its own way
To shed light in those places
Where emptiness lives

Lost ones living on in caverns
In dark places of my soul
Striving to be remembered
Will breathe air into those flames
Till they are beacons of fire

Throwing sunlight at shadows
Lighting cold spaces with warmth
Uncovering lost dreams and loves
And memories of times past
Bringing the promise of hope

Releasing shackled baggage
Tangled in remembering
Leaving love and knowledge
Of those, we have left behind
They will not be forgotten

On wings of bright light and wind
The doors will open wider
Showing us that truth is more
Than we had known before
Long gone are the seeds of doubt

With those memories of loss
That serve only to drag us down
Into the gutter of angst
Hopeless and helpless we feel
Not able to believe it

The end is the beginning
For time ebbs and flows around
In the dance of life, it whirls
And we must nurture all we love
With bright light, love, and honor

Cherishing all those embers
To help us remember good
Our lives are not over now
Till all dark spots are gone
And we are free for glory

It is then we will meet again
When the time is ripe for us
With luck are lessons are learned
And we meet again without hurt
Leaving behind old patterns
Become the best we can be
Together again at last

Forgotten the dark corners
That followed us through the past
We meet again in splendor
Every meeting a new chance
To learn how to love ourselves
For even those dark spaces
Hold the means to cherish
And accept all that is
