Coming home in the aftermath of a storm-plagued day,
I find solace in the sway of the tall gentle trees,
Old with withered branches,they lean against the sunset,
Providing fellowship with their untold tales of elder days
And deep set love of the wild and unspoiled.
She never took the beaten track
So she is used to life beating back.
Scars and bruises never stole her time
She knows pain and love are intertwined.
Still she says:
Don’t you worry about me, I’m strong
I see the love in your eyes and I know
That this life will carry my soul
And what it brings only time will show.
* This is a song by the Norwegian singer-songwriter Numa Edema. It sometimes feels like he wrote it for me 😊😊😊
Every day you infuse with life and love
Leaves a double footprint:
One on your soul,
And one on earth.
Your life makes a path like that:
One will lead others to greatness,
The other will lead you
