Special People Deserve Special Love

Updated on December 14, 2017

Waking Up Is Hard To Do

Off in a sleep

So wonderful and peaceful

Like nothing else matters

Then we awake to a world of craziness

Always changing our life and the people all around us

We have to remember

This is happening simultaneously to everyone

With this energy I explore

I don't know what tomorrow will bring

Many times I am still trying to figure out yesterday

I do feel and believe we have to keep moving forward

Striving for the best we are capable of

Whatever that may be

There are no guidelines

There are rules

They are hidden and some are out in the open

We have to pick and choose which to follow

Which apply to our life where and when

Then we have to stretch the rules at certain times

Taking us out of our comfort zone

Finding us the inner joy

That can not be bought in any store or even on line

As hard to believe as it sounds

It is true

Letting our mind take us half way

We have to search our own heart

Going the rest of the way

We have learned so many things in so many books

Teaching us all about life

It is up to us to live this life

In our own direction with our own thoughts and feelings

Not following anyone else's path

We are on our own journey

We can tag along only for so long

Then we realize we have to part ways

As difficult as it may be

Life is always preparing us for this challenge

When people physically die we call it death

We don't call it rebirth

In society we pay tribute to the person we loved and cared about so much

With a wake and a funeral

Saying our last good byes to their body

All our experiences that we have shared are over

We must go on without that person or persons

Until we to leave this earth

I have never seen a wake that celebrated their welcome home

I would think it should be more like a graduation party

We all will get our chance

We just don't know when

So from the time we are born

We are coming one step closer to death

Yet we don't talk about it

Teach our children about it

We spend so much time in the living

We hint around what comes after

Like a party that is in darkness

Mixed feelings and each person only vaguely discusses their views

Because they don't really know

They don't want to be wrong

Well all my life people have been openly telling me how and where to do everything else

Why is this so different

So why not take the time now to discuss

Things not discussed

How many people have taught us things and only later we found out they were wrong

Now they aren't around to tell them

The opposite is true

I don't want to keep it a secret

Life is the most amazing thing I have ever felt

I wake up and body shakes with incredible joy

Every day I try to find a new way to express it

Like the wind

Sometimes fierce and powerful

Other times soft and gentle

Unpredictable

You never know when it is coming

You never know when it will stop

Appreciated non the less

I don't want to change it

I want to respect it

Feeling its enormous strength

Some people put it's power to great use

On this windy day

I listen and I am off for a walk in the wind

Why can't we all learn a lot from the wind ?

      Gypsy Rose Lee Listen to the wind tell you a story. How each day begins and how every day changes ever so slightly. Giving us the wonders of nature to enjoy and share. Thank you so much for reading and caring.

      I have always found the wind to be inspirational from a whistling to a singing to a howling wind.

      Michael-Milec The greatest joy is the love shared by all. To be a small part of that makes the littlest things in life turn out to be the greatest feelings in life. Thank you for your wonderful comment. Blessings to you and your family.

      A great challenge of a " special people ''. Sometimes it can be each of "us" - you, or me or next person, for love is inserted within us by the Creator. Since it is written "love your neighbor as yourself,"- we will continue to labor in love till the last day of our walk on this planet earth.

      Lovely day.

      Louise Powles The wind is only everything we need to survive. A portion of air brought to our attention. Sometimes things right under our nose are so quickly forgotten. Little reminders help me every day. Thank you for being the first to comment and as I write this the wind had gone away. To somewhere else where it is needed the most. Thank you Wind for blowing in my direction. On the next windy day I will put this hub on paper and let the wind sail it away.

      That's another lovely poem. I agree with your last line - why can't we all learn a lot from the wind? Very true!
