Where I Want You

I thought I had you where I wanted you–
Read and recited,
Pages turned,
Chapters ended,
Stories told,
A book closed without regret.
But you echo like Shakespeare through my mind,
long gone,
never forgotten.
And that’s not where I want you,
is it?


De’s Quadrille word is echo over at
dVerse.

The Trail Inside

1. I’m easily distracted
From the path I’m meant to take.
I smell inviting fruits,
And I want to have a taste.
But even when I falter,
Even when I stray,
You light my way.
Refrain:

2. So many loud opinions,
People give advice.
I don’t know what to do,
And perhaps they got it right.
But even as I wonder,
Even as I pray,
You light my way.
Refrain: (Twice)

Oh remind me of the trail inside.
Remind me of the trail inside.

Refrain:
There are trails of tears
And paths of happiness;
Ways of destruction
And roads to being blessed.
Wherever I may go,
Spirit be my guide,
And remind me of the trail inside.

You need not go to heaven to see God,

“You need not go to heaven to see God;
nor need you speak loud, as if God were far away;
nor need you cry for wings like a dove to fly to Him.
Only be in silence, and you will come upon God within yourself.”

~ Saint Teresa of Avila

What kind of trails do you leave?

“Every person has the power to make others happy.
Some do it simply by entering a room
others by leaving the room.
Some individuals leave trails of gloom;
others, trails of joy.
Some leave trails of hate and bitterness;
others, trails of love and harmony.
Some leave trails of cynicism and pessimism;
others trails of faith and optimism.
Some leave trails of criticism and resignation;
others trails of gratitude and hope.
What kind of trails do you leave?”

~ William Arthur Ward

“Not a single person is exposed to arbitrary blows of fate!
Good or bad, man himself is to blame for everything that strikes him!
He himself, at one time or another, sowed the seed for each event!”

– Roselis von Sass (The Book of the Last Judgement) The writer draws inspiration from “The Grail Message” (In The Light of Truth) by Abd-ru-shin
