Forever

Forever holding a place of undashed hopes
tight and close to my heart

Forever seeking to fulfill the spark’s destiny
to burn even brighter

Forever dreaming of a passion so strong
the world around weeps in joy

Forever standing firm against the hate and indignity others cast indiscriminately
as they try rip away their own pain of not being

Forever placing on a pedestal
that which stands for love and acceptance

Forever being the person I have always been
deep within my soul

Forever loving life
as precious moments of gifted time

Forever shedding the past ills and demons
making way for all that is good and right in the world

Forever encouraging those around
that falter on their way
only reaching out to find a helping hand

Forever creating the sacred spaces in my thoughts
that keep the dreams alive

Forever making new the old and burdened memories
into hope that builds a future

Forever stopping to smell the roses
remembering every day, every second and every life around me
is a gift  to be cherished

Forever sharing the intimate moments of lucid thought
tangibly real and written in my mind
hoping the words are heard

Hoping the words are enough
to open your mind and warm your heart
