Reach for the stars
Trust the dreams
That bloom like flowers around your ribs
Opening your arms to the sunshine.
Let go of the things you cannot control
The world is big
But you are a heartbeat
Your only job is to let your own song soar
Be proud of your own building blocks
Take things one step at a time
Take a breath and be relieved
That all problems are not yours to solve.
There is magic inside you
Keep dancing to your own beat
Never let go of your light.
You are sunshine
You are roses and buttercups
You are starlight and Saturn’s rings
You are a storm of beauty.
[This poem is taken from my book of nature poems.]
And the cool drops
Pitter-patter on the sidewalk
Birds find shelter
In tall trees
As a gentle wind rustles the leaves
The sun shower kisses your hands
And your face
And everything smells like spring
Flowers drink up the water
And your worries are washed away
Today is a new day, a fresh start.
You take my breath away
You add color to my daydreams
Your hugs are sweeter than honey
And your quirks are works of art
I whisper in the moonlight
I ask the stars to keep you safe
I ask the night sky to sweeten your dreams
And for your corner of the world to be happy.
