We Are All Children (Dedicated to my son Felix)

Abeautifullife 079

Stand knowing on this sacred ground,
The moment you’ve lost your way,
Another is always found.
Take each step, no matter how small;
Trusting what moves you forward, won’t take you down.
We are given a lifetime to walk the path,
Notice your surroundings and make it last.
No need to leave a trail behind,
You won’t return to that place in time.
Journey with the innocence of a child;
This will soon make you wise.
When everything begins to look familiar,
Gaze up into the sky;
The stars will lead, your heart will guide.
Have no false pride.
When your feet begin to ache, sit and be still;
Creation will lay with you and recharge your will.
When it seems you’re all alone,
That the echoes and emptiness fill your bones;
Call on nature to give you song.
Find peace in trusting there is purpose to it all.
On the road, it can seem unclear;
At times there is darkness, confusion and fear.
We’ve all been here.
This is a marker on your way, to find the light of day,
You will touch clarity.
We are all children, in the beginning;
With hope,
We are children in the end.

Felix, I believe in you. I love you. NEVER EVER give up!
