Diary of the journey on the path least traveled..just letting the heart do the talking while the fingers do the walking while being different, being me… 🙂
( “I do not do, say or write something to been seen or heard… I do, say or write something because it needed to be done, said or written…” , no nominations please, just sharing thoughts while exploring life 🙂 )..
Thanks for letting me feel love
Be it joy, or be it heartache,
To know someone’s love
A treasured feeling their love did make.
Thanks for letting me live life
To explore, to follow one’s dream,
To seek out and live every adventure
Not enough time in the day… it did seem.
Thanks for letting me meet friends
To share thoughts of love, hope..perhaps a tear,
And by going down the path together in friendship
Doing away with hate, anger….and fear.
Thanks for giving me the courage
To follow my own path…to be me,
To not follow someone else’s path
To live my own….. reality.
Thanks for giving me an open mind
As I venture down the path… allowing me,
To gaze upon life’s treasures, large and small
That many others do not see.
Thanks for giving me an open heart
Able to love, understand and forgive,
And when I grow too old to dream
A place where my memories will live.
Yes, I have much to be thankful for, Mom
And every day the list gets longer… you see,
As I venture down the path least traveled
Searching for what destiny… has waiting for me.

Yes, Mother’s Day is on the horizon…and for all the Mom’s out there (past, present and future) I know there are not enough of proper words to express the thanks and appreciation for the sacrifices you made, the love and kindness you gave and still give…. So I will put it all in these few words “Thank you and a very Happy Mother’s Day wherever you are”… 🙂
I received a invitation one day
Oh, not your regular kind,
The words not spoken or written
But were in the heart and mind.
To share a love and happiness
A love, that is precious and true,
A happiness that is eternal
That only lovers and dreamers knew.
The invite did not come the regular way
No cards, no letters, no phone.. you see,
It just appeared one day
In the depths, the spirit and heart of me.
The invite came from an unknown
A unknown too great for me to behold,
But it was to be a precious beginning,
Of a story, one day to be told.
( Larry “Dutch” Woller )
And there will be some like me who may not have Moms present (my wife passed away in March 2015 and my Mom passed away in December 2015) but they are always present as they occupy a special place in ones heart… “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.” (Dr. Seuss)… 🙂
There is sorrow as I write this
A sadness in this heart of mine,
But knowing she’s free, suffer will she no more
All sorrow and sadness will heal… over time.
There will be happiness and joy
For her, this I know,
As she has joined loved ones
And to a place of peace and love she did go.
And one day I shall again greet my her
On my path… perhaps around the next bend,
It will be a joyful, loving reunion
And it will be the beginning, not the end.
And knowing this I will be happy
Precious memories, to come back whenever,
For like love, memories are everlasting
From now…….. to the 12th of Never.

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there, I do not sleep
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamonds glints in the snow
I am the sunlight on ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn rain
When you awaking in the morning hush
I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight
I am the soft star that shines at night
Do not stand by my grave and cry
I am not there, I did not die
Well, I had better close for now, life is calling and I had better see what it has instore for me…but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise…
