A Long Winding Way

I have stumbled across a new passion: writing. It is proving to be insightful and rewarding.


Guide my steps when I am blind.

Help me see when I get in my own way.

Deep within the emotions of my heart I have sense of self with an absence, an emptiness of a like mind.

I crave a kindred spirit to lead my soul into eternity.

I look inside myself to embrace the source of light.

I have a passion to heal myself with your gracious wisdom.

Please leave me with a kind spirit to fill the void in my soul. I ask for love and protection to keep me safe, that which I need to sustain memories of wisdom and compassion to share with all who see.
