Just musing...

An Emotional Hourglass


Cold as the damp clay that lies in

the bottom of a newly dug grave after a spring rain

Quiet as the sound of the last post

playing eerily over the casket of a dead veteran

Empty like as a motherís womb

that just lost a baby carried for eight months


Laughter so deep it and makes the sadness  

Fade into a bearable memory of time

Joy so immense that your very heart feels

adrift on a sea of happiness

          Loyalty so deep and committed

                   that it asks not why just when



Emotions so much apart of life

if not experienced how much have you really lived?

                   Feelings that regardless of right or wrong

                             must be felt to know the true value of life

                                      Embrace the feelings and share

                                                With friends, children, parents and wife



As the hour glass slowly empties may the second group outrun the first.

Just brilliant, Felix. Amen to that!! For whatever reason, some of us may close down on the ability to "feel" anything... saying "I'm not emotional"; truth is, however, that we ARE emotional beings and those who are freer to express their feelings are perhaps more fully alive to the realities of life than those of us who are closed off and scared to really interact. I have lived my life like that and the pain of thawing out and opening up is scary, but at least I now know that I am not dead! No pain, no gain!! Emotional honesty and integrity in the inner being must be more healthy than stuffing it all away in a hidden corner somewhere... you speak to me powerfully with this one, and I am grateful. Bless you, Pops. Kate xx

Anita and Eileen are right. These very profound words should be on a plaque, and we should all heed them for they are very good advice. You have done it again, brother of mine, you have made us all feel a little guilty, a little sad, and a little happy. Thnx for sharing Felix. May the Lord be with you, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & (((HUGS))), yer sister in the written word, Barbie
