When these things come to pass, the weeping of children will turn to laughter and all will be as it should be.


She is
She is the rarest of things
A painite crystal so seldom seen
She is life-saving
An oasis in a sea of sand
She is elusive
A butterfly flitting from flower to flower
She is soothing
An evening rainfall after a torrid day
She is gentle
An angelic child yet wise
She is sad
A wild bird captive in a cage
She is held prisoner by the schemes of men
She waits
When the hearts of humans melt
And compassion flows from them
She will be set free
And Peace will soar
At last

Oh this is a heart wrencher Regis, oh too often we hold our little ones back from attaining there true potential, but if we stand back and let them shine, as they will in there own time, we see the true beauty and talents within.
Yes, let them take flight, to be free to unlock the genius within.
Wonderful write, and I am glad to be able to get into your den tonight to say Gday, missed you, and your gilded quill my friend.
I had been away from the den for some time, so now I am catching up with everyone at last.

This is just so simply wonderful, Regis. The beauty, the words, the scenery, the images are all a part of what we hold very dear in our hearts. This one made me cry too, dear brother, but tears of joy because one day I so hope that compassion will set us all free and that peace will definitely soar higher than the eagle.

Thanx for sharing this warm, tender, and passionate write from your heart, Regis. I really enjoyed this.

May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie
