Was once asked…How have you been…
Sure have missed you…Why were you gone so long?
In which My reply was following….
Smiles at you gently…..Have been right here within the wind …
blowing ever so gently against your cheek…
Have you not felt me near?
Within the very sunshine…
that caressed you ever so softly…with it’s ray of warmth…
Upon the very bottom of your feet..as you took every small step..
to softly make your path more bearable to tread..
Have you not felt me at all?
Soft whisper that you hear…yet can’t quite make it out..
Within your dreams trying so desperately
to keep the cobwebs from settling in…
Peaceful feeling you feel every now and then..
that’s me saying Hope your having a lovely day…
Smile you see within others when they greet you
or when you meet their eyes…that’s me…
Small raindrop that settles so gently upon a leaf..
That butterfly that floats by so gracefully
as if it owns the very air..
Sound of the birds so beautiful
as they sing their songs of joy..
Yet also that bell ringing in the distance…that sounds so far…
Yet close enough for the sound of the ears to share it’s true beauty…
Sounds of your windchimes
blowing in that gentle breeze..
In all the beauty that surrounds you …I’m there…
All you have to do is look closely …and listen gently…
You shall surely feel my presence
near you at all times….My Friend…
Voice of Silence
