Your Hand In My Pocket


No, it's not there because I think you're going through my pockets (smiling) It's because I care for you, worry about you when you're not around, look for you and wonder if life is treating you decently, I CARE for you, read what you write, try and feel what you feel, and keep your hand in my pocket to re-assure me you are fine, you are alive and happy and perfect in your world.

I wrote this poem/prayer for my FAMILY MEMBERS to show them how I feel, what I feel, why I feel, and I want to give it to you, my friends, my dear dear fellow writers, my Constant Reader.

=======================================

All good courage my fate to bear, and in so bearing, accept.

To honor a family that remembers.

You are my family. Now.

Take this writing from my heart,

which bears falsely to furor and envy -

Cease O storm!

By the Lord's own orders shall your waters be calmed.

Hasten all troubles from their door,

this is my Family - which is every family, which are children of the children we love.

I whisper up this prayer

on the light of a candle,

for the hearts and souls of those who yearn to be healed, and come alive -

to breath unencumbered,

always in the shadow of His watchfulness and protection.

I seek my Lord, to help me embrace and befriend this physical pain of my constant complaint,

and in so doing

be more silent and grateful.

For you. My family. My constant ones.

All joy is mine to share

as I walk in the light of new days and rest in the comfort of familiar nights,

My gratitude is to my Lord - with praise, power, and promise.

He blessed me with you.

What manner of foe

dare cry victory o'er me?

Another day of light and life is bestowed upon us, where lies another miracle more worthy!

The heart refuses to let go

of what the mind cannot forget,

and I will never forget

YOU.


============================================

Thank you for being in my Life, and sharing yours with me, so willingly. A shower of sweet stars upon you my dear friends.......................

Very touching poem and entry. Beautiful thoughts, generous and full of love.
I have just arrived back in Madrid, after two months in Portugal. It is back to reality and back to work.

You are a very nice Earthling and I hope that the "karmic boomerang" is returning with oodles of good stuff.

Thank you, Cathy that was lovely. It is nice to be included in your love for family. You have the ability to touch the heart. I always think about you when I look at the stars because you have brought your love for them to us, close and real. Gerry

With no family of my own, no home where I'm known, no permanent place for my heart, I welcome a humble spot in your pocket.

Hello my dear friend, I have been away, just read your beautiful and very touching poem. You came into my life about 7 years ago and into my pocket, I am so very proud to know you Luddie, wherever I roam I always stop and think about my dear friend and the joy you bring to me. Your heart and very touching words reach out to a good many in blog land and you have a way of making everyone feel as if you are writing to them exclusively, that takes a very gifted writer as you are my friend. God bless you and thank you for including me in your family of friends.
