please listen to the music..
After all ,I muse, I knew that time would steal you from me,
I have been preparing myself for this for so long.
You never, really, were solely mine.
Your heart danced ,and I watched as you followed it's lead.
I could never call you back, and pretend it's all okay.
For life is not merely a stage on which we carry out our whims.
It is much more than that.
The ache and the longing accompany deep emotions.
In order to have peace, one needs to release our fears.
Believe in Hope.
Then dear child, and only then,is freedom found.
I wrote the above a few days ago. I was feeling a wave of fear/anxiety about the future, and all the unknownsit holds. Then I had to remind myself that God has ordained my/our destiny.Although we are allowed to choose, the outcome isn't some random happening.http://bible.cc/psalms/139-16.htm
