Love You

My heart weeps for you in your sadness

My love cannot take away your pain

All I can do is love you

Till the dark clouds of grief float away

And the sun shines within your heart

Holding you close in my love

The healing balm of my love will comfort you

Death is as certain as life

Grief is the sorrow of love

Time is our unkind master as life ticks away

Your heart must say farewell to your beloved

And I will love you till the sun shines again

Stephen Rowlands

Far Away

Death is a truth of life everyone dies

The hardest fact of life is that life goes on

Our hearts in sorrow never seem to heal

Whether our beloved abandon us or pass away

Life moves forward in a constant rhythm

It is very easy for friends to say

Your beloved is in a better place

Let go just move forward live your life

Our grief deep within stands us still

Heart and mind craving the presence

Of our beloved far away

Life is a journey in this world and beyond

We must weep for our loved ones passed away

And bid a fond farewell with love

To our beloved who journey far away

Love has no boundaries in time and space

For love is eternal and cannot pass away

Let us give our love and blessing safe journey

To our beloved who journey far away

Angel

Finding solace in peace and quiet away from burden and noise

I sit still as the candle flame my heart opens in service  

Colours of lovelight shining outward from my heart

Love fills my awareness spirit are present my senses awaken

A connection of love and unity a bond between two worlds present and eternal

Within my minds eye I see an angel serene in blue and white light

She comes close to me face to face within her deep beautiful eyes

A wisdom Of time and space universal mind and creation

My limited earthly perception cannot comprehend

The angel opens my awareness to universal mind

Connecting me with all who wish to speak in loves service

Giving the teachings of universal love and eternal life

Little Acts

Little acts of kindness are gifts from the heart

To friend’s and foes patience is our guide  

No matter the hurt and pain we give and receive 

Little acts of kindness will be our epitaph

A memorial of how we lived and loved

Our anger will not be remembered

By those who’s feelings we hurt 

Our little acts of kindness will live 

Within the hearts and mind’s

Of friends and foes for evermore

At Peace

I welcome my old friend silence

To calm the noise of my mind

A welcome visitor to give me respite

From all that troubles me

Ego bows in humility to silence

Awakening the sentience of heart 

Compassion for my persecutor

is my lesson

Healing and calming my mental storm

Silence bids me to become silent

Within this moment of clarity

All that matters is silence

As in all moments

Peace is a natural state of being

Beginning

I seek you neath the half moon
My spirit fades without your gentle feeling
Eternity in afterlife will judge our purpose
The sun will rise and I will leave
My love for you neath the half moon.

Looking up to the morning blue

Your presence is gone

Thankful for the sacred gift of life

My purpose becomes clear

Now I can seek out my life and truth

Without the illusion of your love

Inner creation is mine to command

The future beckons me to become.

Stephen Rowlands 11/01/20

Stop The World

Stop the world my beloved has died

I want the world to take time to mourn

Abandoned in this moment

As the new day marches on in time

I stand here in solitary sorrow

Physical death is final and unforgiving

I will never see you again in this life

Stop the world give me time

My beloved’s presence is no more

Just memories of once was

To keep my beloved alive in heart and mind

I wish to tell you of my beloved

The blessing he was to me and family

Stop the world and listen

My beloved has died

Stephen Rowlands 22/12/19
