It Comes Around

There is no beginning.
There is no end.
It all comes back,
To circle around.
Spiral us up,
Or knock us down.
It all happens.
Round and round.
The days will move differently.
We promise you this
When you get a handle
In this little bit.

Joy.

Radiate it out.
Pull it in.
Sparkle for the world.
Shine from your skin.

Only then will the world come around.
Sparkling diamonds.
Love all around.

So if you are feeling down,
Remember,
It all comes around.

The joy will resurface.
The light will emerge.
The dark days do end.
You have our word.

Love and blessings to you. đź’• Carrie 2019

My Grateful World

In the quiet of the moonlight,
stars twinkle bright,
capturing my gaze.
I feel so small under the canopy of stars,
but I am so big in your world.

Your tiny hand reaches for mine.
You gaze toward the sky.
A brief moment of quiet embraces us.
For a rare moment,
you are speechless.
I relish the quiet,
gulping it in as I breathe.

The moment passes,
the questions start again.
The endless chatter.
The music of your voice fills the night air.
You giggle over something you just said.
Oh, how magical that giggle is.

I smile.
The quiet was fleeting,
the chatter,
the giggles,
and those speechless moments,
all come together to fill my world.

My grateful world.
