Spirits of the Past


Oh, the grandeur of the night

the scents, the beauty

ghostly spirits gathering round

I see them, feel them

I know them and yet

time and space has distanced us

from one another

oh, to relive the joy, the love

when we were together

so many friendly smiles

and I feel so much a part of it all

just a free kind of feeling

among spirits in the night

from somewhere gentle breezes blow

and clouds stretch across the sky

the moon peeks out

and I can see spirits flying about

voices so dear

from days gone by

they call to me and I see

couples waltzing from cloud to cloud

as the stars seem to be winking from above

Summer 2012 092

dream or reality?

I didn’t know how long I’d been

among the spirit world

but I knew I was with friends

such a feeling of rapture

it filled my heart and soul

made me embrace life all the more

knowing that these spirits were around

their visits ease my mind

and I always find

that it gives me great joy

knowing that one day

they’ll be there to say

welcome to our world
